To Smother a Fowl in Oysters


Fill the bird with dry Oysters, and sew up and boil in water just sufficient to cover the bird, salt and season to your taste. When done tender, put into a deep dish and pour over it a pint of stewed oysters, well buttered and peppered, garnish a turkey with sprigs of parsley or leaves of cellery: a fowl is best with a parsley sauce.
