Preheat the oven to 325°.
In a large bowl combine your chopped shallots, carrots, celery, beet and garlic together.
Rub the turkey inside and out with salt and pepper. Tuck the wings under the turkey and place the turkey in a large oven roasting bag. Place your vegetable mixture over and around the turkey and add two teaspoons of honey into the mix. Fold the top of the bag over and place turkey, breast up, into your roasting pan.
This is the secret that will make your Thanksgiving turkey super moist and delicious. Add water to a depth of about 1 inch in the pan.
Roast turkey for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. If you want to use a meat thermometer, insert your needle into the thickest part of the leg (but not touching the bone). The temperature should be 165° to 170°.
At this point, you want to carefully remove the Thanksgiving turkey from the bag. Increase the oven temperature to 450° and roast the turkey for 30 minutes longer. Turkey should be a golden brown by now. If it’s not, leave it for another 10-15 minutes.
Carefully remove the turkey from the oven and transfer the turkey to a platter without the juices. Transfer the juices to a separate bowl and let everyone use it as gravy.
