    great recipe! didn't use the dripping to make the gravy, they were a little sweet and the sugar caramelized on the pan. put aluminum foil in the roasting pan for easier clean up. turkey was incredibly moist. will definitely use this recipe again!

    I have made this turkey twice and it is great! It turns out super juicy and the gravy is awesome!

    Dry as a bone. Worst turkey I've ever made.

    My second whole roasted turkey ever, and it turned out really good! Added extra apple cider to basting and extra cornstarch to thicken gravy a little more. Did not have poultry seasoning, so made my own with 2ts sage, 1 1/2ts thyme, 1 ts marjoram, 3/4ts rosemary, 1/2ts nutmeg and 1/2ts blackpepper. Used 1Tbs of this instead of poultry seasoning. I did found that the turkey was done sooner than estimated time.

    This Turkey is the best. Easy to prepare and delicious.

    Very good- here's my tweaking: I use whatever wine I have on hand to stand in for the cider (red or white works well). Also, I add a few drops of Fish sauce and pomegranate syrup to the basting mixture. Sounds wacky, but it adds a depth to the flavor without being overpowering. For the cavity I add a dried lime (my new secret ingredient in all savory dishes!!) to the mix.
