Thanksgiving dinner @ Peter's
Image by inju via Flickr

* 1 turkey, thawed
* 2 apples
* 4 plums
* 1/4 tsp sage
* 1/4 tsp garlic powder
* 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
* 2 oz tequila (or preferred spirit)
* One piece of cheesecloth large enough to hold fruit misture

Boil turkey in a large pot of water for approximately 2 hours (you may add sage and garlic for additional flavor).
While turkey is boiling mash the apples, plums, spices and tequila and let set for one hour at room temperature.
Wrap fruit mixture in cheesecloth and tie the opening tightly.
After turkey has boiled for two hours, remove from pan and stuff the spice bag into the turkey cavity.
Wrap turkey in aluminum foil and place on the grill for about one hour or until done (varies based on size of turkey).
The spices bake all through the turkey and it remains very moist.

Notes: This is a wonderful Thanksgiving day meal, it may sound complicated but, it’s actually a very easy way to fix a turkey.
