Growing up, mom rarely cooked turkey at Thanksgiving. Being Jamaican, we opted for more flavorful dishes for our holiday feast. And it's no wonder, turkey is very difficult to cook. The breast and legs are a particular challenge to get moist at the same time without over cooking. So cultures that aren't familiar with the bird tend to avoid it all together. Eventually, turkey became the norm at Thanksgiving, though with plenty of other caribbean dishes to compete. Out of this scenario evolved the Jamaican Style Roast Turkey-with a touch of spice and lots of flavor. If you want to try something new with your turkey this year and step away from the ordinary, give this recipe a try. The roasted vegetables add color and beauty to the presentation and are all cooked right under the turkey.
