Roasted Turkey with Sage

Roasted Turkey with Sage

3-hour 30-Minute recipe Serves 12
Roasted low and slow, this roasted turkey is flavoured from both the inside and the outside with a simple rub of sage, paprika, garlic, salt and pepper. Tip: Watch out for over-basting; it will keep the skin moist and lower the oven temperature, lengthening the cooking time.
