      This recipe looked too good to pass up, even though I was looking for something for just drumsticks. I didn't change any of amounts of the other ingredients, I just placed the vegetables (and fruit) in the baking dish around the drumsticks. I didn't have any fresh thyme, so I used dried. I did have the fresh sage, and the flavor really shines through here. The meat was juicy, but I can see where a whole bird would have been batter here, to allow the flavors to infuse the turkey through the cavity.

      Moist meat! love it! I tried to go as low fat as possible. So I didn't use any butter and it browned just fine. I would have basted it if I had the time. Maybe next time. :)
