Roast Turkey with Apples and Cider Sauce

October 3rd, 2013 by Chef Bill

Ingredients

• 1 (3 pound, boneless) turkey roast
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
• 2 (1/2-pound) Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and each cut into 16 wedges
• 1 cup low-sodium fat-free chicken broth
• 2/3 cup unfiltered apple cider
• 1/2 teaspoon arrowroot (cornstarch)
• 1 tablespoon water
• 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
• 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Rub Turkey with olive oil and place skin side up on a rack in roasting pan. Combine seasonings; sprinkle over roast. Bake at 375 degrees, (45 to 60 minutes) or until meat thermometer reads 165 degrees.
Transfer to a platter and let stand, loosely covered with foil, 15 minutes before slicing.
While meat is standing, melt butter in skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides. Add apple wedges and sauté, turning occasionally, until tender and golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer apples to a plate, and then add chicken broth and cider to skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat and meanwhile whisk together arrowroot and water in a small bowl. Whisk arrowroot mixture into sauce and boil until thickened and reduced to about 1 cup, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar, measured salt and pepper, and any juices that have accumulated on platter.

Cut meat into 1/4-inch-thick slices and serve topped with apples and sauce.

Refreshing Minted Honeydew Soup

May 27th, 2013 by Chef Bill

This would make a wonderful first course for a summer dinner under the stars–or a refreshingly light snack. A luscious tribute to the sweet melons ripening now, the recipe calls for only four ingredients: melon, mint, lime juice, and honey. You don‘t have to cook it at all–just whiz it in a blender or food processor. The results are refreshing.

If you don’t have any honeydew handy, you can use any sweet melon you have available for this healthy recipe.

4 pounds ripe honeydew melon, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks (about 1 large honeydew)
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, about 1 ½ oz wt.
6 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice (more if needed)
2 tablespoon honey

Optional garnishes: fresh mint sprigs, thin lemon slices

1. Process the ingredients in batches in a blender or food processor until smooth.
2. Pour into a container. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or overnight.
3. Taste, adding additional lime juice, if necessary serves in individual chilled bowls, garnished with lemon slices and mint sprigs, if desired.
Serves 6.

Happy Eating, Chef Bill
