Roast Turkey With Maple-Butter Glaze Recipe

1 (14- to 16-lbs.) fresh turkey
1/2 lemon
1 apple, quartered
1 onion, halved
3 to 4 stalks celery, cut in half
Salt to taste
1/4 lb. butter
1/2 C. maple syrup

Bring turkey to room temperature before roasting. Heat oven to 325 F. Wash and dry turkey. Stuff with lemon, apple, onion and celery. Truss; season with salt.

Melt butter in maple syrup over medium heat; pour over turkey. Place on a rack in a pan. Roast 10 to 12 minutes for each pound. Baste every 20 minutes. Use an instant-read thermometer inserted into thigh without touching bone. (Pop-up thermometers that come with turkeys are unreliable.) Thigh should register 175 to 180 F. at thickest part, breast meat 170 F. Before carving, let rest outside oven at least 20 minutes.

Makes 14 to 16 servings.
