Mom's Famous Turkey

Over medium high heat bring to a boil orange juice and brown sugar.   Wash and pat dry turkey and rub with salt & pepper and Olive Oil.  Stuff cavity with 1 orange.  Over high heat (Le Crusset Pot) sear turkey breast until forms a good crisp.  Squeeze another orange onto turkey and drop into pot.  Turn upright and cook @ 350 degrees in your oven for approximately 1.5 hours (should read 165 degrees or your thermometer pops out).

Remove turkey from oven and let cool.  Slice and serve with leftover gravy.
