|Title:||Honey-Glazed Turkey With Roasted Pineapple|
4 1/2 pounds turkey breast (4 1/2 to 5 pounds)
1/2 cup dry white wine or 1/2 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot or 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Place turkey breast, skin side up, on rack in
shallow roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of meat and does not touch bone. Roast uncovered 1 hour.
Peel pineapple. Cut lengthwise into 16 wedges; remove core. Cut each wedge in half crosswise to make 32 wedges. Mix wine, honey, soy sauce, gingerroot and garlic. Arrange pineapple on rack around turkey. Brush turkey and pineapple with wine mixture. Roast uncovered about 1 hour, brushing turkey and pineapple frequently with wine mixture, until thermometer reads 170 degrees F and juice is no longer pink when center is cut. Remove turkey and pineapple; keep warm.
Pour drippings into measuring cup; skim off any excess fat. Add enough water to drippings to measure 1 cup. Heat drippings to boiling in 1-quart saucepan. Mix cornstarch and cold water; stir into drippings. Boil and stir 1 minute. Serve with turkey.
