INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup minced fresh sage
1/4 cup minced fresh rosemary
1 turkey (14 pounds)
1 medium apple, quartered
1 medium onion, halved
1 celery rib, halved
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup apple jelly, warmed

DIRECTIONS


1. Combine sage and rosemary. With fingers, carefully loosen skin from the turkey breast; rub herbs under the skin. Secure skin to underside of breast with toothpicks.

2. Place breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan. Stuff turkey with apple, onion and celery. Brush with butter.

3. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 3 to 3-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180°, basting occasionally with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.) Brush with apple jelly. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before removing toothpicks and carving.
