Glaze

  1. Combine all glaze ingredients in a saucepan and reduce by one-half over medium heat. Strain and set aside.

Cover and place in oven immediately. After 3 hours, insert a cooking thermometer into thickest part of drumstick without touching bone.
  2. Continue cooking until thermometer reaches 170°F (80°C). Brush with one-third of glaze, then return to oven for 10 minutes with lid off. Repeat twice. Internal temperature must reach 185°F (85°C). Click here to consult the cooking table for “Freezer to Oven” whole turkey.
