When I first started collecting family recipes, the one I really wanted to know was how my mother made her roast turkey, it was so good! The turkey breast was never dried out, but always tender and full of flavor. Her method? First she buys the best turkey she can (organic, free-range, etc.) and then she cooks the turkey breast-side down. She also cooks the turkey stuffing separately, not in the cavity, which makes it easier to cook the turkey more evenly.
