I am usually not a big fan of turkey, but wanting to cook a traditional yet unusual dinner for Thanksgiving, I tried this recipe. Am I glad I did. I'm sold! It was the best turkey I ever had. I will never cook turkey any other way.
This recipe gave the turkey the prettiest color I have ever seen. But the cheese cloth had to be basted about every hour and I ended up taking it off and covering the turkey with foil for the last two hours of cooking. I found that the moistness of the turkey was not really that much different than what I usually get and most of the flavor was in the skin instead of in the meat. Maybe injecting the turkey would allow more of the flavor to come out. Probably won't do this recipe again, but it was nice to try something different.
Used this recipe for our very first Christmas turkey dinner (we're newlyweds). My mother-in-law was impressed. The directions, as written, are not that easy to understand though.
This recipe couldn't have been more perfect! I used it to introduce my British boyfriend and flatmates to Thanksgiving dinner, and it was my first time cooking it as well. Couldn't find tangerine juice, so used juice from clementines instead, and it still came out perfect. We also used the Sausage, Apple, & Cranberry stuffing, which was the perfect complement. Whether you like classic or offbeat, whether it's your first or 30th Thanksgiving, I recommend this recipe.
I made this turkey today for an early Xmas get-together (12/14/02) and it was so-so. The tangerines and flavor allegedly described in this recipe were not tasted at all. Anyway, what WAS A HIT was the Awesome cranberry and sausage stuffing - the web link for this recipe is on the same page as "Awesome Tangerine-Glazed Turkey". WOW - people loved that stuffing and the rosemary, sage, cranberries, celery, sausage ingredients were GREAT tasting! See my review on the stuffing page - it was just simply delicious and mouth-watering. Not only did I love the stuffing, so did my other 9 relatives!!! Try the stuffing!
Tastefull but too greasy
It is indeed out-of-this world!!!
Everyone loved it.
This was the juiciest turkey that I have ever made and very tasty. Guests really enjoyed it.
