Take out the giblets off your turkey. Pat it dry and then leave it in room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat your oven on 325 degrees. Season the turkey with salt and pepper. Fill the turkey with carrots, apples, chopped onions and herbs. Then tie the legs together. Place it in a roasting pan, breast-side up, and brush it with melted butter. Cover it with foil and roast it in the oven for 2 hours if its a 10-12 pond turkey. Add an extra 15 minutes per pound if it’s a larger turkey. Take the turkey out, brush it with more melted butter and put it back in the oven at 425 degrees. Roast it until the thigh meat shows 165 degrees, which should be in about an hour. And we’re done!
