Winner, winner turkey dinner!!!!! This was soooo easy and came out perfect. The meat fell off the bones and was so moist and flavorful. I always thought turkey was like pizza: there's really no such thing as "bad" turkey, as it's easy enough to camouflage any shortcomings with gravy and sides. But with this recipe I'll never suffer a mediocre bird again. I cut back on the celery and carrots so I could include a huge Fuji apple, thickly sliced. Also, as I've had some issues with turkeys cooking fully the past few years, I cooked mine at 425 for 30 minutes then reduced to 335 for the remaining 3 hours for a 14# bird (I looked at a lot of recipes/tutorials and about half suggested roasting at 350 vs. 325, so I split the difference). I didn't make the gravy, but dumped everything left in the roaster pan into my stockpot with the turkey carcass to boil down for stock. Definitely give this one a try - even if you don't have fresh herbs for the cavity it won't disappoint!!!
