Orange-Glazed Turkey

2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons dried savory
2 teaspoons rubbed sage
1 turkey (18 to 20 pounds)
2 medium pears, thinly sliced
1 large onion, quartered
1 celery rib, quartered
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
3/4 cup orange marmalade
3/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon honey

In a small bowl, combine the salt, pepper, savory and sage. Rub 1 tablespoon of seasoning mixture in turkey cavity. Place the pears, onion and celery in turkey cavity; tie drumsticks together. Place, breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan. Combine butter and remaining seasoning mixture; brush over turkey. Bake, uncovered, at 325 for 3-1/4 to 3-1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, combine orange marmalade, orange juice and honey in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Set aside and keep warm. When turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with a tent of foil. Bake 1 hour longer or until meat thermometer reads 180, brushing occasionally with the orange glaze. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before carving. Thicken pan juices for gravy if desired. Makes 18-20 servings.
