      This was good. I had a very large Orange and it was a fair amount of work to dice up all that orange peel. I would definitely do the prep work the day before if I make this again. The Turkey filled my house with the smell of oranges and fresh herbs and of course roasting turkey throughout the day and it had a good slightly tangy lightly orange flavor. The gravy was too orange flavored for my taste. Overall this was a good recipe but maybe not my very favorite.
