Here it is. THE turkey recipe. If I were lactose intolerant I would use lard or bacon grease in place of butter.

2/3 cup flour, sifted
3 cups apple cider
1 cup dry white wine
1 apple, peeled, cored, and diced
2 shallots, chopped (about 4 Tbs.)
1-1/2 cups homemade or low-salt canned chicken stock; more as needed
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme
For the turkey:
Oil for spraying brown grocery bag
12- to 14-lb. fresh turkey (preferably organic), with neck
Reserved herb butter from Buttercup Squash Soup
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 recipe Wild Rice Stuffing
Kitchen twine for trussing
5 Tbs. butter, cut into 10 pieces
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. fresh thyme
3 cups homemade or low-salt canned chicken stock
Fresh herbs for garnish
