Honey-Apple Turkey Breast

 Honey-Apple Turkey Breast
I found this recipe in a diabetics’ cookbook. We really like the honey flavor. The sweetness comes through when I use the leftovers in casseroles and soups, too.
12-14 ServingsPrep: 10 min. Bake: 2 hours + standing

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup thawed apple juice concentrate
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 bone-in turkey breast (6 to 7 pounds)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325°. In a small saucepan, combine apple juice
  • concentrate, honey and mustard. Cook over low heat 2-3 minutes or
  • just until blended, stirring occasionally.
  • Place turkey breast on a rack in a foil-lined shallow roasting pan;
  • pour honey mixture over the top.
  • Bake, uncovered, 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reads
  • 170°, basting with pan juices every 30 minutes. (Cover loosely
  • with foil if turkey browns too quickly.) Cover and let stand 15
  • minutes before carving. Yield: 12-14 servings.
Wine: Medium-Bodied White Wine: Enjoy this recipe with a medium-bodied white wine such as Riesling or Gewürtztraminer
