I first made this EXACT recipe back in 2003...it was my first time ever making a turkey and first time having Thanksgiving at my own home. The turkey turned out awesome! It tasted extraordinary!!! The meat was so tender and had a wonderful flavor..a slight tang along with the herb and nice golden outside. Beautiful. I LOVE this recipe. I lost it about 10 yrs ago during our move and hadn't found it again...til now.
