How to Roast a Fresh Turkey

Roasting Fresh Turkey

We estimate 20 minutes per pound in a 350° oven.

Step 1:
Place 1″ water in bottom of roasting pan, along with neck and giblets (if desired).

Step 2: Place aluminum foil tent with holes in it over the turkey. We highly recommend using a meat thermometer. Put thermometer in the heaviest part of the thigh.

Step 3: Check turkey every hour to hour and a half, basting and adding water to pan, if needed. When the temperature reaches 170°, remove foil to brown. When the turkey reaches 180°, it is done. ENJOY!
