ihOO’s Chef Beth Notes:

·      Save your giblets and neck to make a fresh gravy

·      Poke very small holes in the turkeys skin to place olive oil and herbs under the skin

·      An every-day olive oil will work perfectly to coat the turkey. O& CO Antonio Cano Hijos Spain

·      Flavored olive oil can also be used.
