Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and arrange rack as low as possible in the oven.
  2. Remove the bird’s gizzards (eek!).
  3. Rinse turkey and dry using paper towels. Tie its legs together with a string.
  4. Place turkey (breast side up) in a roasting pan.
  5. Put rosemary and two apple halves inside turkey. Sprinkle turkey with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, adding sea salt to taste.
  6. Place remaining apple wedges around the roasting pan.
  7. Place roasting pan in the oven and roast for 4 hours (15 minutes per pound). *Note: if you see the turkey’s skin browning too soon, cover turkey with foil.
  8. To know when you’re turkey is done, check its temperature by sticking a meat thermometer into it’s thigh. At 175 degrees, the turkey is done.
  9. Once turkey is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool off for 20 to 30 minutes. Carve and serve!
