1 12-Pound (or larger) Turkey
Fresh rosemary stems
Fresh sage leaves or stems
1 ts Poultry seasoning
1/8 ts Salt
1/8 ts Pepper

1 lg Carrot
1 md Rib, celery
Wash your turkey and trim excess fat and giblets. Loosen the skin from
the turkey at the neck cavity to insert sage leaves. Press skin to
Quarter onions, celery, and carrot and place in the open cavity of the turkey. Sprinkle half of the poultry seasoning, pepper, and salt mixture inside the turkey and the remainder on the outside.
Tuck in the turkey legs and place breast side up on a rack. You can buy disposable aluminum racks in the grocery store. Spray the turkey with a vegetable spray and cover loosely with foil.
Bake according to directions on the package your turkey came in. Remove foil when 20-30 minutes of cooking time remains.
After your turkey is done, let it stand twenty minutes. Garnish with grapes and remainder of sage and rosemary.
