What a tasty recipe!!! I made it for Pick a Chef 2006 and I'm glad I did! I didn't use a whole turkey but just skinless turkey breasts so I cut the recipe in half. I also use honey instead of maple syrup. Despite all these changes the result was great.I believe that with a whole turkey and the stuffing the result will be much better. It's a keeper! Thanks Darlene!
