Roasted Whole Turkey Breast

  

 A whole Turkey Breast contains two lobes of breast meat. Serving Turkey Breast roasted is the most common way and also the broadest. Using this cooking method allows for you to experiment with different vegetables and spices that all create different flavors suited to your dining experience. With this roasted turkey I decided to use Arabic spices that have aromas of cumin, pepper, lemon, dill, turmeric amongst many others. However; as stated before, you may use any vegetables and spices that you wish, but use this same method of cooking.

Another debate on turkey breast is whether to cook it breast down or breast up. Cooking the turkey breast up will allow your turkey skin to get crispy while leaving the breast tender. Note* skin must cover all of the turkey meat or your meat will dry out.* cooking your turkey breast side down will cook the breast within the juices allowing for flavor and tenderness. I personally do both. First I cook the breast side down then the last 30 min I flip it over and crisp the turkey skin.

  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. In a small bowl mix a ¼ cup of butter and your choice of spices ( in this recipe I used Kabsah spices which is an Arabic blend, salt, and pepper) set aside
  3. Cut vegetables ( I used onions, carrots, and tomatoes) options: celery, onions, potatoes, carrots, turnips, green beans.
  4. In a 3 in deep pan place turkey breast side up and separate skin from meat. Add butter mixture over the meat, under the skin as well as the inner cavity of the breast. Pull skin over the meat, so it covers all exposed areas completely. Then turn over and cook breast side down.
  5. While holding the breast upright, place vegetables around turkey so they can help support the turkey breast up.
  6. Add 1 cup of water and cover with foil.
  7. Cook for 1 ½ to 2 hours
  8. At the remaining ½ hour: remove foil, and turn turkey breast side up and continue to cook for 30 min.
  9. When finished, tent the foil over the turkey breast and allow turkey to rest for 15 min before

Hormone Free Grass-Fed Beef, Pastured Turkey Pork, Open Range Chicken

The benefits of eating pasture raised, grass-fed meats are hard to deny. From the extra nutrients to the shaky ethics surrounding commercially raised animals, pasture-raised cows and free range chickens win every time. While we hear the most about steaks and beef, the same benefits can apply to any animal raised without hormones in its natural habitat. Typically pork or chicken is referred to as pasture raised, or free range instead, as these animals are natural omnivores and eat a little of everything. Our family farm produces grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and free range turkey and chicken. Our gourmet meats and dairy products are shipped fresh to customers in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and the Chicago, Illinois area. Pastured pork, beef, chicken, and turkey is not only better for the animal, but it’s also better for the consumer too. If you’ve shopped for meats at most grocery stores, you probably saw bright red packages of similar shapes and sizes, which is different from the varying packages of beef you would find when shopping with an small, local farmer. Each animal is unique, and John Henry’s doesn’t use steroids, hormones, or fatty feeds on our farm. This produces a higher-quality cut of meat that can vary in size, shape, and color depending on what muscles were exercised more. Grass-fed beef, and pasture raised turkey, pork, and chicken also have fat that is more yellow due to healthy beta carotenes that are present. We also cut each of our meats fresh and ship it to you the same day! If you haven’t tried grass-fed beef, pastured pork, or free range turkey and chicken you don’t know what you’re missing. Save $10 on your first shipment with promo code “New10” John Henry’s ships to Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennesee, New England, Virginia, West Virginia, THe Carolinas, And more!
