Roast Turkey

whole turkey
salt & pepper to taste

Heat oven to 325*. Remove giblets from turkey and wash turkey thoroughly. (Set giblets aside in a plastic container in the fridge for later, they can help make a beautiful turkey stock). Rub turkey with margarine. Place turkey in a roasting pan. Sprinkle salt, pepper, sage and thyme over turkey. Cover and roast. Roasting time depends on the size of your turkey. We usually get a smaller turkey (between 8-12 pounds) and I cook it for 3 - 3 1/2 hours. Check a roasting chart if your turkey is larger than this.
