I got this excellent recipe from my friend Elaine in Texas. Serves 8-10. Photo from TasteofHome.com.
- 1 5 to 51/2 pound turkey breast, skinned and boned.
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
- 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/2 teaspoon dried whole thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 cups frozen raspberries, thawed
- 1/3 cup sugar
Place turkey breast in a 13x9x2 inch pan. Pour orange juice over breast and sprinkle with orange rind, sage, thyme, and pepper. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer registers 170 degrees, basting frequently with pan drippings.
Transfer turkey to a serving platter. Set aside. Measure 1 cup pan drippings, adding water, if necessary, to make 1 cup; strain and set aside. Combine cornstarch and 1/4 cup water in saucepan, stirring well. Add raspberries, sugar and reserved pan drippings. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens, stirring frequently. Serve sauce with turkey.
