Herb−Roasted Turkey With Citrus Glaze
1 − 15 Pound Whole Turkey fresh or frozen (thawed)
3 Large lemons
2 Large limes
1−1/2 Teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 Teaspoon black pepper coarsely ground
1/4 Cup dry white wine
1/4 Cup packed brown sugar
Pan Gravy

1 Bunch, each fresh sage, marjoram, and thyme, divided
Preheat oven to 325F. Remove giblets and neck from turkey; reserve for
gravy. Rinse turkey with cold running water and drain well. Blot dry with
paper towels. Peel skin from lemons and limes to make rose garnishes.
Reserve in refrigerator. Squeeze enough juice from the lemons and limes to
equal 2 tablespoons each. Cut the remaining lemons and limes in half and
place in the turkey cavity. Sprinkle salt in the cavity.
In a small bowl, mix the wine, brown sugar, and citrus juices; reserve for glaze.
Gently loosen skin from the turkey breast without totally detaching the skin and
carefully place 1 tablespoon each fresh sage and marjoram under the skin.
Replace the skin. Fold neck skin and fasten to the back with 1 or 2
skewers. Fold the wings under the back of the turkey. Return legs to
tucked position. Place turkey, breast side up, on a rack in a large
shallow (about 2−1/2 inches deep) roasting pan. Rub turkey with salt,
pepper, and 2 to 3 tablespoons of salad oil. Insert oven−safe meat
thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh, being careful that the
pointed end of the thermometer does not touch the bone. Roast the turkey
in a preheated 325 degree F. oven about 3−3/4 hours.
During the last hour of roasting time, baste with the pan drippings. During
the last 30 minutes, baste with the citrus glaze. Loosely cover with lightweight foil
to prevent excessive browning. Continue to roast until the thermometer
registers 180 degrees F. in the thigh, or 170 degrees F. in the breast.
Remove turkey from the oven and allow it to rest for 15−20 minutes before
carving. Place on a warm large platter and garnish the platter with the
remaining fresh herbs and lemon and lime roses.
Prepare lemon and lime roses as follows: with a small sharp knife or
vegetable peeler, cut a continuous thin 1−inch strip of peel. Avoid cutting
into the white pith. Roll tightly, skin inside out, and secure with toothpicks.
Reserve in a bowl filled with ice water until time for service.

A hungry stomach seldoms scorns plain food.
