Aimee's Roast Turkey

1 turkey (10 to 12 pounds)
½ stick butter
3 or 4 tablespoons of Salt Grass 7 steak spice or your favorite
1 onion, peeled and cut in two
1 apple cut in two

Preheat the oven o 350 degrees.

Remove giblets and neck from turkey and set aside. Rinse turkey and pat dry with paper towels. Place turkey in large pan.

Place the onion and apple in the cavity of the turkey. I also place either half the apple or half the onion in the neck cavity. Melt butter in microwave and brush on the turkey. Sprinkle the bird with the Salt Grass 7 steak spice, coating well. Tie the legs and tuck the wing tips under the body of the turkey.

Roast the turkey 2 ½ to 3 hours, or until juices run clear. Remove from oven and cover with foil and it rest for 20 minutes. Slice and serve.

Use giblets to make your favorite giblet gravy.

I used a Natural Honeysuckle White®, no hormones, etc. I have also used this recipe with a Smart Chicken®, whole and leg quarters. I love this method for roasting turkey and chicken. They turn out very moist and YUMMY!
