2 tbsp of curry powder

1 tbsp of chili powder

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp ginger powder

2 tbsp melted coconut oil

1 cup of raw honey

Directions:

1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees

2. Add honey to a saucepan over low flame. Stir until it gets thin for about 1 minute or as you like. Just make sure you don’t burn the honey to avoid bitter taste.

4. Brush the entire turkey with spiced honey mixture using a culinary brush.

6. Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue cooking. 

7. Open the oven every 40 minutes and brush the spiced honey mixture over the turkey. 

NOTE: If you notice the wings or legs of the turkey are beginning to burn, cover the turkey with foil and let cook till the thickest part of the thigh. Registers 165 degrees F – according to instructions on the package. Cooking time is based on the lb of the turkey.

8. Remove the turkey from the oven and let the turkey rest for at least 30 minutes before carving.

9. For the leftover spiced honey mixture, add about 1/4 cup honey and simmer for about 5 minutes and serve it as a dipping sauce for your Spiced Honey Glazed Turkey.
