North American, Thanksgiving

1. In a medium saucepan, combine rosemary, butter, honey, white wine, whole garlic clove quartered, half the sage and half the thyme. gently simmer for 3-5 minutes, allowing the flavour from the herbs to infuse into the sauce. Remove and keep the sprig of rosemary.


2. Strain the mixture through a small sieve.  Add the strained mixture to a meat injector and inject 1/3 of the juices into the turkey breasts.


3. Drizzle another 1/3 of the mixture on top of the breast. Season with pepper. I do not use salt because it can draw out some of the moisture of the turkey and it really doesn't need it. If you don't have an injector, just pour about 1/2 of the mixture on the breast and then season with a sprinkle of pepper as well as the remaining sage and thyme. Place the sprig of rosemary across the top of each breast.


4. Place in an oven preheated to 325°F. It should take about 45 minutes depending on your oven s keep an eye on it. At about 30 minutes baste the turkey with the honey mixture and place it back in the oven. Baste it again about 5 minutes before it is ready. It is ready when the internal temperature in the meatiest section has reached a temperature of 160°F.


5. When cooked to temperature, remove the turkey from the oven and tent the turkey breast with foil for 15 minutes. Serve sliced on an angle.
