Rosemary-Orange Roast Turkey

Serves: up to 8 | Cooking time: 3 hours, 30 minutes

Developed by Brooklyn Supper, exclusively for Farmer Focus!

“This rosemary-orange turkey comes out of the oven with crisp, golden skin and suburb flavor. A sea salt, brown sugar, rosemary, and orange zest dry rub melds beautifully with the inherent flavor of an organic, free-range broad-breasted bronze turkey.”
