Stuffing a Turkey with Citrus Fruit

I want to stuff a turkey with citrus fruit. Do you peel the fruits, or cut them, or just put them in whole with their skins?

It is a great idea. But try to peel it off first or it might not taste as good as you would imagine. The taste might actually wear off pretty fast. Thanks for asking this here. I am happy to help you guys. companion care services

Citrus fruits in a turkey NEW
by: Shannon

I have always taken an orange , lemon, lime and tangerine in my turkey . I wash them quarter them and stuff them in the cavity. Then I rub it with garlic salt and pepper .. And that's it . Baste it every half hour using chicken broth in the beginning .. Tim foil covered until the last 30-45 minutes to brown ! Yummy !!! I always get compliments on how juicy it is :)

I put whole washed fruit in the turkey, usually one whole onion, one whole apple, two whole oranges, I poke holes in them to allow the juices to come out, I also slice apples and orange on onion and place it all around the wings and legs, tuck it in the cavities...underneath the bird I chop carrots onion and celery for a bed for the turkey to rest on add one 16 oz glass of water or chicken broth, season with salt and pepper, cover and cook the time it says per turkey, no need to bast...it will be moist and perfect every time.

Turkey Flavored with Citrus
by: Karen from DDP

Putting citrus in the cavity of your turkey is a good way to lend it extra flavor and moisture. What I normally do is wash it well, quarter the fruit (skin and all-- the zest has tons of flavor), and place it in the cavity. Be sure not to stuff it too full of citrus, though, or your turkey will take longer to cook! One to two pieces of fruit per turkey should be fine.
