Do you feel that the turkey breast during the holidays is dried out? I have learned to roast the turkey with the breast side facing down. This way, all the juices constently marinate the bird. So white and dark meat remain moist. I put apples, onions, sage and celery around my turkey, so it makes even liquid to work with.
My mom did this by accident and we were so impressed with how moist the white meat was that we always cook our birds upside down...including chicken! Who would have thought it would make such a difference!
