Thanksgiving Menu

We had a great Thanksgiving dinner this year:
The Perfect Turkey
· 3 hours before baking put lots of salt on the skin, cover with cellophane, leave on the counter
· Inside cavity, onion, celery, carrot, garlic, lemon, sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary
· Under breast skin, melted butter and sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary
· 1 cup of chicken broth in roaster
· Bake 20 minutes uncovered at 475
· Reduce heat to 325 until done, do not cover unless getting too brown
· If done too early, reduce heat to 250 for no more than 30-45 minutes
· Rest covered with foil for at least 30 minutes
