1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse fresh produce.

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

4. In a medium bowl, combine butter, garlic, pepper, olive oil, brown mustard and herbs.

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.

8. The turkey is cooked through when a meat thermometer inserted into the breast reaches 170 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Fahrenheit in thigh).
