Citrus and Honey Glazed Turkey 



1 20lb turkey

2 tsp freshly chopped sage 

2 tsp fresh thyme leaves

2 tsp coarse salt

½ tsp freshly cracked pepper 

1 stick butter, softened

1 orange, quartered

1 lemon, quartered

1 lime, quartered

5 cloves garlic, smashed

1 bunch of fresh herbs- rosemary, thyme, sage, oregano

½ cup orange juice

½ cup Mackay’s Orange Marmalade

1 tbsp honey

5 tbsp salted butter



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Remove giblets and neck and discard or reserve for gravy. Clean and dry the turkey and set on a cutting board.
  3. Combine the sage, thyme, salt, pepper and butter and rub all over turkey, making sure to get under the skin over the breast.
  4. Add orange, lemon, lime inside the turkey, then use If You Care Organic Kitchen Twine to truss the turkey closed.
  5. Carefully place the turkey, breast side up, in an If You Care Extra Large Roasting Bag with the seam side up on in a large roasting pan. Secure the opening of the Roasting Bag by folding towards the top of the turkey and roast for 2.5 hours.
  6. After 2.5 hours of roasting, add orange juice, Mackay’s Marmalade, honey and cinnamon to a small saucepan and heat until boiling and thickened, about 15 minutes.  
  7. Carefully cut or rip the top of the Roasting Bag to expose the turkey. Use extreme caution, as the steam will be very hot.
  8. Brush the orange mixture all over the turkey, then place back in the oven and continue roasting for 1 hour or until turkey reaches 165 degrees F on a meat thermometer.
  9. Carefully remove the turkey from the Roasting Bag by lifting and let it rest on a cutting board or platter for at least 20 minutes.
