Directions

  1. For cranberry glaze, combine water and sugar in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add cranberries and return to a boil, stirring occasionally for about 6 minutes or until berries pop and soften.
  2. Transfer cranberries to a fine sieve set over a bowl and press contents through sieve. Discard solids and stir in 2 tablespoons of the TABASCO(R) Chipotle Sauce. Glaze can be refrigerated up to two days before using.
  3. To prepare turkey, combine butter, salt, pepper, and remaining 2 tablespoons TABASCO(R) Chipotle Sauce in a small bowl and mix well. Place turkey in a large roasting pan and brush with butter mixture. Bake in a 325 degrees F oven for approximately 11 minutes per pound for an unstuffed bird, or until an internal temperature of 180 degrees F is reached.
  4. One hour and 20 minutes before the turkey is done, begin brushing it with cranberry glaze. Brush turkey liberally every 20 minutes, 3 separate times, and then roast turkey without basting for the last 40 minutes. Let rest at least 30 minutes before carving.

We substituted a potent homemade hot sauce for the recipe provider's product, but the heat of the sauce disappeared in the roasting, leaving us with a turkey essentially just smeared with cranberry puree. If you don't like the taste of Italian herbs, I suppose this recipe might appeal to you. Otherwise, there isn't much going for it.

Decided to try this and am glad I did, it turned out GREAT.... only problem I had was it took an extra 45 minutes to cook even though I used a 12 pound turkey, which made the skin a little darker than we like it.
