Sugar and Spiced Turkey
Serves 8 to 10 people

This recipe was originally published by Southern Living and it makes a really moist turkey that browns beautifully.

1 (12-pound) whole turkey
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons kosher or coarse-grain sea salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground mace

1 large onion, quartered
2 (14-ounce) cans low-sodium chicken broth

Remove giblets and neck; rinse turkey with cold water. Pat dry. Tie legs together with string; tuck wingtips under. Combine brown sugar and next 6 ingredients. Rub over turkey. Cover with plastic wrap; chill 8 hours.

Place turkey on a rack in a roasting pan, breast side up. Arrange onion quarters around turkey. Pour 2 cans broth in bottom of pan.

Bake, loosely covered with foil, at 325° for 1 1/2 hours. Uncover and bake 1 1/2 more hours or until meat thermometer registers 180°. (Cover with foil to prevent excessive browning, if necessary.) Remove onion and discard. Let turkey stand 15 minutes before carving.

Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs if desired.
