       1-12-15# Whole Thawed Turkey

       1 cup coarse chopped celery

       1 Tablespoon minced fresh rosemary

Then place turkey in the pan tucking the wings underneath, and then tie the legs together like they are crossing them. Then place remaining vegetables in the cavity of the turkey.  Then mix butter with the garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper and rub over entire turkey.  Place turkey in preheated 350 degree oven and cook for approximately 2.5-3.5 hours.  If turkey starts to get too brown during cooking place aluminum foil over to stop the browning.  Take out of oven when turkey reaches and internal temperature of 165 degree taken in the deepest part of the thigh.  Let rest for 15-30 minutes before carving to retain juices better.
