Outlook Good for Menu to
Suit 100 Per Cent Ameri
cans, Dealers Say.
Indications this afternoon are that
turltev is going to play a most im
portant and conspicuous role in the
observance of Thanksgiving day in
Washington this year. Unless there
is a decided change in conditions be
tween now and Thursday it will be
possible for many families to afford
a real old-time Thanksgiving dinner?
from turkey to nuts.
The Washington market today is
exceptionally well supplied with tur
keys. and at a late hour tbey were
still pouring in. The quality of the
birds arriving was never finer, accord
ing to such judges as Steve Callahan,
District food inspector at the Center
Market, and other old-time market ex
perts. In fact, never in the history
of the trade was there finer assort
ment. And, best of all. the price has
dropped, with little possibility of any
decided rise between now and Thurs
Bales Made at 40 Cents a Pound.
Numerous sales were made yester
day afternoon and this morning at
42 cents a pound and in some in
stances the price was as low as 40
cents a pound. However, the prevail
ing price, up to noon today, has been
45 cents and it is considered very
doubtful if the prices reach or go
beyond 50 cents before the feast day.
Practically all turkeys this year will
be fresh killed. The cold storage
birds disappeared last summer when
Vncle Sam bought up supplies for his
soldiers and sailors, principally the
latter, the day of salt pork for tars
long since being past; but that is an
other story entirely.
The supply of turkeys is said to be
normal. in fact some market men
think it will exceed the normal de
mand before noon tomorrow. It ap
pears that all the country folk within
a 150-mile radius of the capital have
been raising turkeys the past year.
There was one shipment yesterday
from Culpeper. Vs.. consisting of 1,200
which averaged nine one-half pounds
This shipment brought 38 cents a i
pound wholesale when placed on the j
market, which indicates that the^ re- ;
tail prices prevailing, although high
sounding to those existing in pre-war
times, is certainly moderate.
Strong Family Preference Shown.
With everybody anxious to have a
real Thanksgiving in 1918, there is a
strong demand in the family circle for
turkey. This demand loses nothing
from the fact that moat household |
economists figure that the price of tur- I
key is not much, if any, higher than i
mo6t of the meats which could be used ,
as a substitute.
Inspector Callahan, whose opinions
go a long way among men in the
trade, said today that the turkey mar
ket in Washington is more favorable
than it has been in a number of years.
He suggests that housewives place
their orders at the earliest possible
moment. Mr. Callahan declares that
there will be no speculation with tur
keys this year on the part of the
dealers. He explains that the latter
want to know just how many turkeys
they will need for their customers and
are buying just enough to go round,
and no more.
Shipments already are being re
ceived from Virginia, Maryland, Penn
sylvania. New York state. New Eng
land and the west. Ducks and geese
are not as plentiful as usual and the
price is not as low as would be ex
pected, considering prevailing turkey
Outlook for Fruits and Vegetables.
Potatoes, onions, cranberries and ap
ples are plentiful and prices moderate.
Celery, however, is not plentiful to
day, but the local dealers look for the
arrival of a large shipment within the
next twenty-four hours.
The food administration has planned
a universal Thanksgiving dinner
menu for the American home, which
has the simplicity of the first Thanks
giving meal of the Pilgrims.
Not a fowl or fruit or vegetable is
mentioned on the menu that could
not be found on any American farm.
The fare, as planned, is not only
typical of our national feast and of
our first peace holiday, but also of the
interest of the food administration in
all matters of the table.
Menu for 100 Per Cent American.
The menu planned for 100 per cent
Americans on the American feast day is
as follows:
Roast Turkey, Chicken. Duck, Gooee or
Game (if the state law permits),
with Bread Dressing
(Left-over Dried Bread).
Mashed Potatoes.
Hashed Turnips.
Baked Tomatoes (Home Canned).
Cranberry Sauce.
Lettuce or Fruit Salad.
Pumpkin-Pie or Steamed Pudding.
The food administration has given
the following recipes:
Cranberry Sauce?One quart cran
berries one pint water, three-fourths
cup sirup, three-fourths cup sugar.
Boil the sirup, sugar and water for
five minutes; skim if necessary Add
the berries and cook without stirring
until all the skins break.
Pumpkin Pie Filling?Two cups
pumpkin (cooked and strained), one
half cup molass>V or sorghum, one
teaspoonful cinnamon, one-half tea
spon ginger, one-half teaspoon salt,
two eggs, two cups milk.
Mix pumpkin with molasses and sea
soning. Add beaten eggs and milk.
Bake in a pastry-lined pie plate until
