  • 4-5 tablespoons Grace Jerk Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  1. Remove giblets from turkey, rinse with cold water and pat dry inside and out.
  2. Careful loosen skin over breast and legs using your fingers. Avoid tearing the skin.
  3. Combine Grace Jerk Seasoning, honey, soy sauce and rub liberally over turkey inside and out.

  7. Brush turkey once again with oil mixture before placing on a baking sheet and fit it over a roasting pan with 2 cups water.
  8. Tuck the wing tips under the turkey and truss the legs together. Bake at 180 degree C/ 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, then reduce temperature to 160 degrees C/ 325 degrees F and bake for a further 3 1/2 hours.
  9. Remove the aluminium foil, about 30 minutes before the total cooking time.
