Boiled Turkey

(Meats.) - (A Poetical Cook-book)

But man, cursed man, on _turkeys_ preys,

And Christmas shortens all our days.

Sometimes with oysters we combine,

Sometimes assist the savory chine.

From the low peasant to the lord,

The _turkey_ smokes on every board.


Make a stuffing of bread, salt, pepper, nutmeg, lemon-peel, a few

oysters, a bit of butter, some suet, and an egg; put this into the crop,

fasten up the skin, and boil the turkey in a floured cloth to make it

very white. Have ready some oyster sauce made rich with butter, a little

cream, and a spoonful of soy, and serve over the turkey.
