I do not remember where I got the recipe, but this recipe puts a end to eating dry turkey. I was in charge of a disaster canteen for the Salvation Army in Florida and cooked a lot of turkeys for their dinners. We had a professional chef in our worship center who asked for my recipe, said "your turkey's are so good". I am now 85 years old and still asked to cook the family's turkeys.
