  2. Place breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan. Stuff turkey with apple, onion and celery. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt to taste.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 3 to 5 hours, depending on size of turkey or until a meat thermometer reads 180°. Baste occasionally with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before removing toothpicks and carving. Yield: 10-12 servings.
