Turkey Rub ~ Citrus Seasoning

With Thanksgiving approaching I think I shall share a few of my turkey dinner ideas.  We are making a turkey dinner tomorrow so I will begin with the rub we are trying out.  We decided to go with a lemon, orange and thyme combination after seeing a few different recipes and articles.

  • 1 Tbs lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 tsp orange zest
  • 2 Tbs coarse salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp dried thyme

Combine all ingredients.  Pat turkey dry and rub all over tossing any extra inside the cavity.  Refrigerate uncovered overnight.

We are using a 14 pound turkey and this made enough rub for one turkey.  In the morning we will set it out for about an hour before baking.  I will continue the recipe tomorrow once we get this turkey roasted!
