DIRECTIONS

  • I prefer to brine my turkey before roasting so just about any brine recipe will do. There are several very good ones posted on Recipezaar.
  • After brining rinse turkey and pat dry with paper towels. Rub turkey with softened butter and sprinkle inside and out with salt and pepper. Place in roasting pan with a cup of water (or broth) in the bottom of the pan.
  • In a bowl combine preserves and Kahlua mixing well.
  • Spread half of the mixture over the turkey and place in 350 degree oven.
  • About half way through the roasting spread the other half over bird. Basting often with juices.
  • Continue roasting until bird is cooked through and golden brown. If the breast is getting too brown tent with foil.
