Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Cut turkey giblets into small pieces, set aside (for the sauce).
  3. Peel the oranges.
  4. Divide them into sections, then set aside for garnish.
  5. Cut the orange peel into half-inch slices.
  6. Melt the margarine in a small saucepan over high heat.
  7. Add the sliced orange peel, then saute quickly for a minute.
  8. Stuff the orange peel into the turkey.
  9. In a small bowl, mix together the honey, cooking oil, and orange juice.
  10. Brush all over the turkey, reserving half for later.
  11. Season the turkey with salt and pepper, truss and transfer to a large roasting pan, then roast in the oven at 375°F for about 1 hour.
  12. Brush the rest of the honey-orange mixture on the turkey, then return to the oven and roast for 60 - 90 minutes more, until it is cooked.
  13. You can check by using a meat thermometer - the internal meat temperature must reach at least 160°F (71°C).
  14. After it is cooked, turn off the heat and leave in the oven for about 15 - 20 minutes more before serving.
