Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries
  • 4 tablespoons TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce, divided
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (12- to 14-pound) turkey, rinsed and trussed

Preparation

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.

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® Chipotle Sauce. Glaze can be refrigerated up to two days before using.

To prepare turkey, combine butter, salt, pepper, and remaining 2 tablespoons TABASCO® 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°F oven for approximately 11 minutes per pound for an unstuffed bird, or until an internal temperature of 180°F is reached.

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.

Makes 14 to 16 servings.
