Miss Beecher’s Domestic Receipt-Book
Catharine E. Beecher (1846)

To Boil a Turkey.

Make a stuffing for the craw, of chopped bread and butter, cream, oysters, and the yolks of eggs.

Sew it in, and dredge flour over the turkey, and put it to boil in cold water, with a spoonful of salt in it, and enough water to cover it well.

Let it simmer for two hours and a half, or if small, less time.

Skim it while boiling.

It looks nicer if wrapped in a cloth dredged with flour.

Serve it with drawn butter, in which are put some oysters.
