"The glaze gives a wonderful sheen to the bird. A great addition to the menu is wild mushroom stuffing, cranberry sauce with raspberry vinegar, mashed sweet potatoes, rutabaga and parsnip casserole, green beans with walnuts, date and onion relish, pear chutney, and of course, pumpkin pie and butterscotch pie. If fresh sage is unavailable use 1/4 teaspoon dried sage." — by Christine L.
