Honey Spiced Glazed Turkey

Recipe submitted to "Cooking Across Turkey Country" by: Lisa Densmore, Red Lodge, Mont.


  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ can cranberry sauce (jelly style)
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Rub turkey with oil and roast as you normally would, with or without stuffing. Combine remaining ingredients to make a glaze. About 45 minutes before the turkey is done, paint the glaze all over the turkey. Repaint it every time you baste the turkey until it’s done. Recipe covers a 15-pound turkey.

FYI: Sweet Honey Fact: Honey is a healthy substitute for sugar in cooking and baking. You only need to use half the amount of honey compared to sugar. In other words, if a recipe calls for a cup of sugar, use a half-cup of honey.
