Ingredients You'll Need:
- 12-14 lb whole turkey, thawed
- 1 cup Maple Roch's pure, organic Canadian maple syrup
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tsp dried thyme
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Orange and rosemary sprigs (for garnish)
1. Preparing the Turkey
Begin by preheating your oven to 325°F (165°C). Rinse and pat dry the turkey, ensuring there are no ice crystals left inside the cavity. Place the turkey on a rack in a roasting pan.
2. Mixing the Maple Glaze
In a bowl, mix together Maple Roch's pure, organic Canadian maple syrup, melted butter, dried thyme, a pinch of salt, and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper. This glorious concoction will be your secret weapon for an unforgettable turkey.
3. Glazing the Turkey
Brush the maple glaze generously over the entire turkey, ensuring every nook and cranny gets coated in this sweet and savoury elixir. This step infuses the bird with the warm, comforting sweetness of pure maple syrup.
4. Roasting the Turkey
Place the turkey in the preheated oven and set a timer. Roast the turkey, basting it with the maple glaze every 30 minutes. This basting process not only imparts flavor but also keeps the turkey wonderfully moist.
5. Garnishing and Serving
As your Maple-Glazed Roast Turkey nears perfection, garnish it with slices of fresh orange and sprigs of rosemary for a burst of citrusy and herbal aroma. When the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 165°F (74°C), it's ready to be the centerpiece of your Thanksgiving table.
