Brown Sugar and Orange Turkey Glaze

Brown Sugar and Orange Turkey Glaze

This thick, sweet citrus glaze tops your Thanksgiving turkey with layers of flavor.


3 1/2 cups glaze


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter
  • 3/4 cup C&H® Golden Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 cup white wine


In a pan on the stovetop, heat butter, brown sugar, juice and wine. Stir until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved.

Baste turkey with glaze frequently while roasting.


After handling raw poultry, always wash hands and contact surfaces thoroughly. Completely cook chicken through until internal temperature reaches a minimum of 165°F.

Do not use any glaze on the turkey after it has finished cooking, that was used to baste it during roasting.
