Thanksgiving Turkey!

This is a wee bit late, but hey I was out of town and did not get a chance to make my own turkey until recently. Turkey can be extremely moist and amazing if cooked correctly and with the correct seasoning. Or it can be over cooked, dried, and taste pretty badly. I have learned so many tricks of the last 6 years living on my own with my kids and husband, when it comes to making a turkey and making it correctly for that.

You Will Need:

Organic Turkey
Organic Grass-Fed Butter
Organic Garlic Salt
Homemade Ranch Seasoning
Real Salt

Wash your bird out really well, place in a pan big enough to hold this bad boy!

Season with garlic and salt

Add my homemade ranch packets to the top, as much or little as you want 

Place a little butter on top- you can work the butter into the bird or leave it as is; I left it as is

Add 3 to 4 cups of water in the pan

I placed foil on top of ours, to help it cook evenly before browning it. Cook your bird according to the package of the bird; but be sure to cover the bird in its juices every 30 minutes, or it will dry out

Once my popper popped I knew it was ready, I pulled it from the oven, and continued to cover it in the turkey juices every 5 minutes. This is allowing the turkey to soak back up the juice and become moist. Allow to rest 1 hour (while basting every 5 minutes)
