In just a few days, most of us will be putting a turkey in the oven for a table of family and/or friends. Why not serve all those people the best darn turkey they’ve ever eaten in all their lives?

Doesn't it even look better than all the other turkeys?

All you need is a big turkey, some onions, a large oven bag, and a bottle of Texas Pepper Jelly’s pepper jelly, pretty much any flavor, although my family prefers Pinapple Habanero.

Make sure you remove everything (bag of giblets, neckbone, etc.) from inside the turkey. Cut the onions into large chunks and put them inside the turkey.

With a pastry brush, coat the turkey with the pepper jelly. Put the glazed turkey into the oven bag, and place it in the baking pan. (Sometimes I use one of those disposable pans, and sometimes I use my nice roaster. The turkey doesn’t really care.)(You’ll want to wash your hands right away.)

Bake according to the weight of the turkey. The turkey will stick a little to the oven bag, but that’s okay. Cut the bag away and throw it in the trash. Brush more pepper jelly on the turkey; it will melt and smell like a dream come true.

Most people slice their turkey, but in my family, we “pick” it. We pick every shred of meat off the bones and pile it on a big platter.

However you serve your turkey, glazing it with Texas Pepper Jelly will create the most delicious turkey you’ve ever tasted.
