1
bone-in whole turkey breast (4 1/2 to 5 pounds), thawed if frozen
1
pineapple (3 pounds)
1/2
cup dry white wine or 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
  1. Heat oven to 325°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.
  2. Cut rind from pineapple. Cut pineapple lengthwise in half; cut out core. Cut each half crosswise into 8 slices. 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 longer, brushing turkey and pineapple frequently with wine mixture, until thermometer reads 165°F. Remove turkey and pineapple from pan; keep warm. Discard any remaining wine mixture.
  3. Pour pan 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.

Mixing cornstarch with cold water first helps prevent lumping that would otherwise occur if cornstarch alone were added directly to the hot liquid.
