      Orange Glazed Turkey

      Serves: 18 | Prep time: 25 minutes


      • 2 tsp salt
      • 2 tsp dried savory
      • 2 tsp rubbed sage
      • 1 (18-20lb) turkey
      • 1 celery rib, quartered
      • 1 large onion, quartered
      • 2 medium pears, cored and thinly sliced
      • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
      • 1 tablespoon honey
      • 3/4 cup orange juice
      • 3/4 cup orange marmalade


      In a small bowl, combine the salt, pepper, savory and sage. Rub 1 tbsp of seasoning mixture in turkey cavity. Place the pears, onion and celery in turkey cavity; tie drumsticks together. Place, breast side up, on a rack in a roasting pan. Combine butter and remaining seasoning mixture; brush over turkey. Bake uncovered, at 325° F for 3-1/4 to 3-1/2 hours. Meanwhile, combine orange marmalade, orange juice and honey in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Set aside and keep warm. When turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with a tent of foil. Bake 1 hour longer or until meat thermometer reads 180°, brushing occasionally with the orange glaze. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before carving. Thicken pan juices for gravy if desired. Yields 18-20 servings.
