Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 325˚F. Tie the legs of the turkey together with string and fold and tuck the wings under the body. Place in a roasting pan. Brush turkey with oil and then sprinkle and rub with salt, herbs and pepper.
  2. Roast the turkey, uncovered, 1 1/2 hours. Baste turkey with pan juices, and then give the pan a 180-degree turn.
  3. Roast turkey another 1 hour and 15 minutes. Insert an instant-read meat thermometer deep into an inner thigh of the turkey, not touching the bone. If it registers 185˚F, the turkey is ready. If it doesn’t, baste the bird again and roast 15 to 30 minutes more, or until the 170˚F temperature is achieved.
  4. Transfer turkey to a large platter. Tent with foil and rest the bird until you’re ready to carve, at least 15 minutes.
  5. To make gravy, skim excess fat from the pan drippings. Place the pan on the stovetop over medium-high heat. Add 2 1/2 cups of the stock and bring to a boil. Place the flour and the remaining stock in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Whisk the mixture into the pan and simmer until thickened gravy forms, about 5 minutes. Carve the turkey and serve the gravy in a sauceboat alongside.

Recipe Options: 1 teaspoon of dried sage, marjoram and rosemary could replace the fresh called for in this recipe.
