Ingredients

1 cup water

3/4 cup sugar

1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries

4 tablespoons TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce, divided

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 (12- to 14-pound) turkey, rinsed and trussed

Directions

  1. For cranberry glaze, combine water and sugar in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add cranberries and return to a boil, stirring occasionally for about 6 minutes or until berries pop and soften.
  2. Transfer cranberries to a fine sieve set over a bowl and press contents through sieve. Discard solids and stir in 2 tablespoons of the TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce. Glaze can be refrigerated up to two days before using.
  3. To prepare turkey, combine butter, salt, pepper, and remaining 2 tablespoons TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce in a small bowl and mix well. Place turkey in a large roasting pan and brush with butter mixture. Bake in a 325 degrees F oven for approximately 11 minutes per pound for an unstuffed bird, or until an internal temperature of 180 degrees F is reached.
  4. One hour and 20 minutes before the turkey is done, begin brushing it with cranberry glaze. Brush turkey liberally every 20 minutes, 3 separate times, and then roast turkey without basting for the last 40 minutes. Let rest at least 30 minutes before carving.
