1/1 Photo of Roasted Wild Turkey W/ Raspberry Sauce
2 hrs 15 mins
My Dad brought me a turkey that my Grandfather had shot. I'd never cooked a wild turkey before & was a little nervous that my husband would find it too "gamey". Through suggestions from Dad & some different recipes I looked at, I came up with this very easy recipe for when the great hunter brings home the goods. (I let them skin & clean the bird for me). The turkey comes out nice & moist, & the tangy raspberry sauce is the perfect compliment. Not gamey at all!! You can also throw some fresh raspberries into the sauce, if you don't mind the seeds.
