What You Need

Tbsp.  oil
small  onion, chopped
cloves  garlic, minced
lb.  ground pork
can   (8 oz.) tomato sauce
pkg.   (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
cup  raisins
cup  PLANTERS Slivered Almonds, toasted
large  navel oranges, divided
  frozen turkey (15 lb.), thawed
pkg.  (14 oz.) frozen tamarind pulp, thawed
cup  sugar
tsp.  cornstarch
Tbsp.  butter

Make It

HEAT oven to 325ºF.

HEAT oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook and stir 3 min. Add pork; cook 5 min. or until no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Stir in tomato sauce; cook 2 min. Add stuffing mix, raisins, nuts and the juice of 2 oranges (about 1/2 cup); mix well. Cook 5 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Cool 15 min. before stuffing the turkey.

REMOVE and discard neck and giblets from turkey cavities. Rinse turkey; drain well. Free legs from tucked position, but do not cut band of skin. Place turkey, breast-side up, in roasting pan. Spoon stuffing into neck and body cavities, being careful to not pack stuffing into turkey too tightly. Return legs to tucked position; turn wings back to hold neck skin in place. Cut 1 orange into 8 slices; arrange over turkey. Cover breast loosely with foil to prevent over-browning.

BAKE 3 hours, basting occasionally with pan juices. Meanwhile, combine tamarind pulp, sugar and juice from remaining 2 oranges in saucepan. Remove foil; bake turkey 45 min. to 1 hour or until done (165ºF), brushing with 1/4 cup of the tamarind mixture for the last 15 min.

REMOVE turkey from oven; let stand 15 min. before carving. Meanwhile, stir cornstarch into remaining tamarind mixture until completely dissolved. Bring to boil; cook and stir 1 min. or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in butter. Serve warm with turkey.
