Juicy Turkey

What You Need:

  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Butter
  • 1  whole turkey
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • Tablespoon of Flour
  • Poultry Season

Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Clean the turkey, place it in the pan and season the inside with salt and pepper. Melt a half cup of butter and use a brush to butter the turkey from front to back. Season the outside of the turkey with salt, pepper, poultry season, and garlic powder. Cut up one yellow onion, one red apple, and a stalk of celery. Take a roasting bag, put a tablespoon of flour, place the turkey in the bag and shake it up. After shaking it up, place the turkey, still in the roasting bag, back into the pan. Add the onion, apple and celery in the bag and tie it together. Poke six small holes in the bag from top to bottom. Place it in the oven for 3 ½ hours. Once it is done, take it out and let it cool for a bit. If you want to use a thermometer, place it in the thigh of the leg. Last but not least, cut the turkey up and eat away.
