DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse turkey (with giblets and neck removed) inside and out with cold water. Pat dry with paper towels.
  • Place the celery, lemons, and oranges in the turkey cavity. You might use fewer lemons, oranges, and celery pieces depending on the size of your turkey.
  • Add pads of butter under the turkey skin by making small slits in the skin and slipping the butter under the skin.
  • Generously salt and pepper the entire turkey on the outside and in the cavity.
  • Place the turkey in a turkey-size roasting bag and follow the directions on the bag for cooking.
  • Roast in a 350 degree oven. Roasting time will vary depending on the size of your turkey. A 10-12 pound turkey will generally take about 4 to 4 1/2 hours to roast.
