3. Carefully pat internal cavity of turkey dry with paper towels. Dispose of towels immediately and wash hands after handling raw turkey.

5. Place oven rack in lowest position and preheat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

6. Place turkey in a roasting pan and, using your fingers, rub turkey, on top and under skin, with herb mixture and pepper to taste. Wash hands after handling raw turkey.

7. Lightly cover turkey with foil, leaving one side open, and roast for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, basting occasionally with pan juices. During the last 30 minutes of cooking, remove the foil so the turkey browns to a golden color.
