Cooking process

I am glad to present to your attention an excellent marinade for turkey in the oven. There are many marinades, of course, and I like to experiment with them. Shortly before the New Year, I got a recipe for a marinade, which I immediately wanted to try. The result pleased, and I decided to cook a turkey in this marinade at the New Year’s table. Since that time I have cooked so several times, it always turns out to be wonderful, so I boldly share this recipe with you. You can marinate as a whole turkey, and its individual parts. Depending on the size of the bird, the amount of marinade should be increased.

To marinate the turkey for baking in the oven, you need to immediately prepare all the necessary products.
