Southern Roast Turkey w/ Bourbon Peach Glaze: Date Added: 30 Jul 2011
Listed in: Poultry

1 15-Pound WHOLE TURKEY, fresh or frozen (thawed)
1-1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 Medium orange, cut in wedges
1/2 Cup peach preserves
2 Tablespoons bourbon
2 Teaspoons orange liqueur or orange juice
As needed pickled peaches, for garnish

Cooking Instructions

1. Remove giblets and neck from turkey; reserve for gravy. Blot turkey dry with clean paper towels.
2. Sprinkle salt and pepper in the cavities of the bird. Insert orange wedges into both cavities.
3. Fold neck skin and fasten to the back with skewers. Fold the wings under the back of the turkey. Return legs to tucked position.
4. Place turkey, breast side up, on a rack in a large shallow (no more than 2-1/2" deep) roasting pan. Insert an oven-safe thermometer into thickest part of the thigh, being careful it does not touch the bone.
5. Roast turkey in a preheated 325 degree F oven about 3-3/4 hours. Baste with the pan juices.
6. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, over low heat, combine preserves, bourbon and orange liquid. Cook until preserves are melted.
7. During the last 30 minutes of roasting time, baste the bird with the Bourbon-Peach glaze. Continue to roast until the thermometer registers 180 degrees F in the thigh and 170 degrees F in the breast.
8. Remove turkey from the oven, remove the orange wedges and allow the bird to rest for 15-20 minutes before carving.
9. Place on a warm large platter and garnish with pickled peaches.
10. Note: Provides 22 servings at 6 ounces per portion.
