Butterball's premium young frozen turkeys are "pre-basted"—that is, injected with a solution that includes salt (so there's no need for brining), starch, and sodium phosphate, which keeps the turkey juicy. Roast a Butterball whole, or cut one into parts to make the Roast Turkey with Root Vegetables and Gravy recipe.
Turkeys labeled "natural," like the ones sold by Ashley Farms in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, are typically grain fed and raised antibiotic- and hormone-free. You can order one from a butcher or specialty store; the cost is generally more per pound than for a conventionally raised bird. We recommend brining these turkeys to boost their flavor and juiciness; for recipes like the Sage-Brined Roast Turkey with Oyster Dressing, there's nothing better.
