Citrus-Roasted Heritage Turkey

For this year’s Thanksgiving turkey, we went with a heritage variety, which has a deeper flavor and higher ratio of dark meat to white. Rather than brining, the turkey was wrapped in a cheesecloth-soaked citrus butter before roasting—it kept the bird plenty moist and the skin extra crispy.

Cook's Notes

If you don't want to make your own stock, skip step one and use low-sodium chicken broth instead in the roasting pan and for the gravy. You can find heritage turkeys online at www.heritagefoods.com.
