Broth Injected Turkey

You can get the same kind of extra juiciness that the commercial meat packers are doing while saving lots of sodium by injecting your own turkey. Using a low sodium chicken broth adds almost no sodium per serving. You can find injectors in the gadget aisle of many large supermarkets or any kitchen supply store or buy one online somewhere like cooking.Com for only a few dollars. Starting the cooking at a high temperature seals in the juices and gives you a nice juicy skin.

12 lb Turkey
1 c Low Sodium Chicken Or Turkey Broth

Preheat oven to 500F. Using a hypodermic needle or baster-injector to inject the broth into the turkey. Put turkey in the oven. Let cook for 20 minutes or until the exterior is crisp, but not golden brown. Reduce heat to 375F. Let bird roast until finished.
