whole roasted turkey

Soaked overnight in diluted buttermilk.

Dinner napkin to wick the buttermilk up to the top surface (bottom of turkey) that is not actually soaking. The napkin was saturated first.

Rubbed with olive oil, salt and pepper. No spices, no stuffing, resting on diced potato.

Bottom up so internal juices soak through breast.  Halfway baked.

Breast side up to finish.

Rested, the moisture reabsorbed into the meat.

Mum, I love you. But you never did manage roasted turkey this moist and this flavorful this simply. Although I admit yours were more beautiful by laborious careful basting.
