  4. Transfer the turkey into the refrigerator and marinate for at least 1 hour.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine all sauce ingredients for one minute until smooth.
  6. Preheat oven to 325°F (165°C). Remove turkey from the ziploc bag and place it on the rack of a shallow roasting pan.
  7. Roast turkey uncovered for about 2 hours and 15 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) as read on a meat thermometer. Turn the turkey roast over once, halfway through cooking.
  8. To develop a darker brown crust, brush 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the turkey and broil for 3-4 minutes. Let the turkey rest for 10 minutes before carving.
  9. Transfer the sauce mix into a small saucepan and add one teaspoon flour. Whisk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, and stir continuously until thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
