This is my mom's recipe. She's made it on many a Thanksgiving Day.
1 12-14lb Turkey (Hens are sweeter)
Stuffing of your choice
1/3 cup apricot jam
1/3 cup Kahlua
Stuff and truss turkey with favorite stuffing or cook stuffing on the side.
Strain jam or smooth in a blender or processor
Add Kahlua and mix well
Baste throughout roasting period.
You may add seasoning to this mixture as well.
My mom lines the bottom of the pan with carrots and onions. They will caramelize in the juices during roasting.
