whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
1 1/2 teaspoons
orange, peeled, sectioned, and cut into bite-size pieces
i have done this with chicken and now turkey...the orange glaze is delicious for basting. i use brine turkey as i like my brine chicken as well...its always juicy when i brine. make sure you taste the brine water to your satisfaction.
Just made this for Christmas dinner. After spending all day basting the turkey every 30 minutes, I was very disappointed. Had to put foil over turkey 3 hours into cooking as it was browning very rapidly. Turkey was dry and did not retain any of the flavor of the glaze.
I made this for Thanksgiving and my adult sons who always insist that we also have ham cause they don't like turkey loved it.
I used this recipe for our Christmas Turkey yesterday. It did not disappoint! Wonderful flavors, sealed in moisture, beautiful color bird! It was a great hit. The recipe's a keeper! Thank you.
I use this glaze for any bird that goes in the oven! LOve it! If I don't have marmalade I substitute orange soda or bar b que sauce.
This recipe is fantastic. Quadrupled the recipe for a 25 lb turkey. I also added an 1/8 tsp of grated ginger to the sauce. When the turkey was finished I added 2 tsp of diluted corn starch to the left over sauce and served it. What a huge hit as a Christmas turkey. I highly recommend this recipe!
Used this glaze over grilled pork tenderloin. Excellent!
