Roasted Turkey with Cranberry Apple Sauce

Baked roasted turkey during Thanksgiving. Wondering how to cook a 16 pounds turkey. Search quite a number of recipes from internet, and finally we decided to use our own recipe on how we cook roasted chicken.

Roasted Turkey
What you need:
Turkey marinated with creamy butter ( we used a 16 pounds private selection turkey )
2 lemons ( boiled it with water )
4 potatoes
3 carrots

  1. Thaw the frozen turkey in cold water. Change water every 30 minutes. 16 pounds turkey will take about 8 hours to thaw.
  2. Cut potatoes and carrots into small cube and boil with water. Add in some salt in the hot water. Put aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Clean turkey (discard giblets and organs), and place in a roasting pan.
  4. Apply salt and follow by thyme to the outside of the uncooked turkey. Put the 2 lemons in the cavity.
  5. Add in cooked potatoes and carrots in the pan after 3 hours.
  6. Bake for 4 1/2 hours, or until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the thigh measures 165 degrees F as recommended by USDA. Remove bird from oven, and allow to stand for about 1/2 hour before carving.
Cranberry Apple Sauce
What you need:
1 packet of 12 oz cranberries
2 red apples ( chopped )
1 orange, juiced
3/4 cup of water
3/4 brown sugar
almond ( chopped )

Combine the sugar and water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the cranberries, apples, orange juice, cinnamon, almond and cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let the sauce cool.

Serve in a side bowl with roasted turkey.
