The Best Turkey Recipe in the Oven or Slow Cooker

This turkey recipe gave us a turkey that was juicy and had an amazing flavor.

What you need:

– 2 ” peeled, fresh ginger – 2 oranges, quartered – 2 onions, quartered – 4 carrots – Poultry seasoning

How to make this turkey recipe:

Put the carrots in the bottom of your roaster, under your turkey. One of the oranges, onions, and bulbs of garlic go inside your turkey. The resting place around it.

Add poultry seasoning (this one is freeze-dried and amazing) to the top of your turkey, generously.

Baking Your Turkey

Cook until the temperature of your turkey is 165 degrees. Our turkey took 3 hours in the oven at 350. Uncovered until it started to brown.

Tin Foil Tent

Once it started to brown, make a tin foil tent for the remaining time it is baking.

Cooking in the Slow Cooker

In the slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours.  Once cooked, if you like the crispy skin, remove and broil until crisp.

Do NOT baste if you are using your slow cooker.

You don’t want to uncover or you are letting the heat out, which is going to slow down your cooking time.
