How to Make...
Cut two pieces of paper, each approximately 6 inches wide by 18 inches long.
Six inches by 18 inches seems a reasonable length to attain a nice, frilly decoration -- perhaps up to 24 inches for the fan).
If you'd like, cut pieces of different colors, such as one gold and the other red (or
brown, or whatever color you like). Put the two pieces together and fold them in half, lengthwise. Do not make too hard of a fold, because you want the tops of those cut pieces to 'fluff out.'
Cut slits, approximately 2 inches long, (original directions said 5 cm), into one edge of the folded paper (see picture). If you make a light, horizontal mark, as shown, it is easier to keep the cuts the same length.
For paper 'feet': Put these paper decorations on AFTER the turkey has been cooked and is ready to serve. Take the side of the paper that is NOT cut and wrap it around the ends of the turkey's legs and tightly tape the paper in place.
For paper 'fans': Use a small, thin stick or dowel that is suitable for food use. Take the side of the paper that is NOT cut and glue one end of the paper to the top of the stick . Wrap the paper around the stick, and glue it down.
is the season to indulge in exceedingly sweet treats. Sugared flowers and fruits sparkle under a crisp dusting of crystals that shimmer enticingly in the light and tingle on the tongue. A surprising number of flowers and leaves are delicious to eat: roses, primroses, pansies, fruit tree blossoms, mimosa flowers, not to mention the numerous varieties of mint that are particularly good. Whole or sectioned fruit under a veil of sugar also make beautiful decorations, delectable and irresistible.
1 - egg
1/2 pound - (230 g) fruit: Figd, Grapes, Kumquats, Limes, Red plums (your choice)
1/2 cup - (115 g) white granulated sugar
Lightly beat the egg white. Using a paintbrush, cover the surfaces of fruit with egg white, taking care not to saturate. Place on waxed paper and sift sugar over to cover evenly. Let dry in a warm place for 2 to 3 hours. Sugared this way, fruit keeps as long as when it is fresh.
