Crispy Citrus Turkey

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

10 pound turkey, thawed
6 whole mandarin oranges, unpeeled
20 sage leaves
6 sprigs thyme
2 tablespoons margarine, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup ginger

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rinse the turkey inside and out and pat dry. Slice 4 mandarins and quarter the rest. Lift the skin covering the breast meat and slide as many sliced mandarins, sage and thyme sprigs under the skin as possible. Place any remaining herbs and sliced oranges in the cavity. Arrange the turkey surrounded by quartered mandarins on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush turkey with melted margarine, sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast for 3 to 3-1/2 hours, basting often, or until meat thermometer inserted into inner thigh registers 165 degrees. Tent with foil if turkey browns too quickly. Increase heat to 425 degrees. Brush turkey evenly with mandarin ginger sauce and return to oven. Roast for 15 minutes or until skin is dark and crispy and a meat thermometer registers 170 degrees. Transfer turkey to a cutting board. Tent with foil and let stand 30 minutes before carving. Makes 10 servings.
