Not Your Average Joe’s Rotisserie Turkey Breast



2 tbsp coriander seeds

1/2 Bunch sage leaves, chopped

2 tbsp lavender

1/2 Bunch savory leaves, chopped

2 c mild honey

2 c Madeira wine

1/4 c cider vinegar




Preheat a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add coriander seeds and toast until fragrant. Remove pan from heat.

When seeds are cool, grind them to a powder.

Add sage, lavender, savory leaves, honey, Madeira and vinegar to the ground coriander. Mix well.

In a bowl large enough to submerge the turkey breast, add turkey. Pour marinade over the turkey, ensuring it is completely covered. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 10-12 hours.

Drain the turkey breast.  Thread turkey evenly on the rotisserie-spit fork using a counterweight to achieve an even balance.

Place a drip pan in the center of the oven beneath the area where the turkey juices will drip.                                                     

Place the turkey in a preheated 350 degree F oven. Rotisserie cook the turkey until the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 165 degrees F in the breast.

Remove the turkey from the skewer. Let rest for 20 minutes before carving.
