    juniperwoman's Note:

    I hate touching raw turkey! I hate cleaning it, and brining it, and basting it, and, oh, everything else you have to do to make a proper Thanksgiving turkey. But, man oh man, do I love Thanksgiving turkey anyway! That's why I was so pleased to discover this Betty Crocker recipe. It really works--no rinsing, brining, or basting necessary. And the result is moist and delicious. You get all the taste (and the credit) with almost no work. One note: the Betty Crocker recipe has you cook for 7-8 hours, but depending on your crock pot, this might not be enough. If you're worried about this, cook longer if necessary, or put the crock pot up to high for the first couple hours.

      The worshteshire sauce was too much for us, we could really taste it more than the gravy itself. and my turkey was a bit dry. I think next time i will cut the worshteshire sauce completely and just add a jar of turkey gravy and cook for about one hour less. i did side this with homemade stuffing, mashed potatoes and biscuits and that completed my mid-year thanksgiving meal! thanks for sharing the idea!
