Method

Step 1
Thaw turkey according to package instructions. Reserve neck and giblets for stock.
Step 2
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
Step 3
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, prepare marinade by adding olive oil, garlic, ginger, peppercorns and sauté for 1 – 2 minutes until fragrant. Add sea salt, sugar, orange juice and cider and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cool.
Step 4
Place thawed turkey in a roasting pan with a bottom rack. Pour marinade over turkey and season the outside and cavity of turkey with salt and cracked black pepper. Place turkey in oven and roast for 30 minutes.
Step 5
Reduce oven temperature to 325°F (160°C). Remove turkey from oven and baste with juices from bottom of pan.
Step 6
Cover turkey and pan loosely with foil. Continue roasting (basting every 20 minutes) for another 2 1/2-3 1/2 hours until a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the thigh reads 170°F (77°C) for an unstuffed turkey; 180°F (82°C) for a stuffed turkey; the leg moves easily when twisted and the juices run clear. To brown the turkey, remove foil in the last 1/2 hour of roasting.
