Cooking a big juicy turkey for the first time can be intimidating.  Don't let this bird fool you, it's actually easier than it looks.  We are fortunate to have access to fresh, free range and organically fed birds here in the bay area.  Turkey is not expensive, so treat your friends and family to a great bird.  Get ready to roll up your sleeves and have a great Thanksgiving!!

Ingredients:

1 onion quartered
1 stalk of celery quartered
1 carrot coarsly chopped
1 12 pound whole turkey, neck and giblets reserved
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp ground black pepper
1 teasp cayenne pepper
3 tbsp butter
fresh rosemary and sage

Preheat oven to 325

Place onion, celery and carrots in a large shallow roasting pan

Place Turkey breast side up, on top of all the veggies in the pan.  Make sure to pat the turkey dry inside and out with paper towel.

Combine salt, pepper and cayenne in a small bowl.  Season the inside of the bird with 1/3 of the mixture.  Just pour into your hand, then rub all around the inside cavity of the bird.  Fold the wing tips under the bird.

Melt butter in a saucepan on slow heat then add a chopped group of sage leaves and rosemary (about 4 sprigs).  Cook for about 1 minute or until fragrant.

Place the rosemary and sage inside the cavity of the turkey but keep the melted butter.
Tie the legs together with twine.

Brush the outside of the turkey with the leftover melted butter and season with the remaining 2/3 salt/pepper mixture.

Bake the turkey, uncovered, in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear...probably about 3 hours.  You thermometer should be inserted at the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone, and read 180 degrees F.  Remove the turkey from the oven and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 - 15 minutes before slicing.  

Look at you!  You did it!!

Happy Thanksgiving ~
