BTW I have also made this with whole wheat flour in varied amounts. IMO wheat is healthier, but has a " eat this becaue it is good for you taste" So I limit whole wheat flour to no more than a 1/2 C. substitution.Instead I like all unbleached flour, no whole wheat flour,; then add chopped walnuts. That way I still get more fiber, some heart heathy...

The gravy in this recipe is literally perfect. If you can, plan ahead, and buy extra necks and giblets I would 100 % recommend doubling the gravy recipe. Otherwise do not change a thing in the gravy. I did not follow the turkey recipe exact. I did stuff the bird with everything EXCEPT the orange. Plus added 50% more onion celery & carrot and...

I did as Donna said AND I have also done a little of both BUT I do NOT double the lemon....In fact ( just for my taste) I only use 1/2 the lemon. Once I even used an apple, (fresh sage and thym)e instead of the lemon, , and that was great too.

I think you can do it either way. The advantage of a rack is it makes getting the bird out of the pan easier and also the bird does not stick to the pan. It also helps some w/ draining. If you do not have a rack you can use about 3 --4 fat whole carrots ( OR,make fat foil logs) and place the turkey sitting on top of those. OR just give the center...

Thx. It may be a good idea for FN to add high altitude recommendations as a side editors note in these types of recipes....but since that is not likely to happen, I hope you continue to post. I like in the North east, but travel sometimes. This kind of note helps alot.

A few tips for ALL baked goods that will have a huge impact on YOUR rating : 1) ALWAYS fluff up the flour BEFORE measuring. This makes a difference in actual amt. of flour used.(probably why most European measurements use weight rather than cup measurements). It is more CONSISTANT 2) invest just a few dollars in an oven thermometer. Ovens can be...

Naturally this is very good. However, I really believe 1small change is essential !! HULLED barley or SCOTCH,or pot barley are all far more preferred over pearl barley.The reason is : pearl barley is the least nutritous,offers NO whole grain benifit at all b/c the pearling process strips the grain.
