1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. karo syrup
Combine all ingredients in a 3 qt pot. Using a whisk, stir often.
Once it is done, DON'T remove lid, just turn off crockpot, and let sit for about 5-10 minutes before carving. This turkey is so tender that it just falls right off the bone! Remove turkey from crockpot and carve on large platter or baking sheet. Serve with desired side dishes. This turkey is very juicy and never dry. Try it once and you'll never be able to eat any other turkey again. :) It is so good for turkey sandwiches later, too, because it's still so juicy and tender. Say goodbye to dry turkey!!!
Note: The drippings from this turkey don't work perfect for gravy just because of all the salt. However, I have made gravy using a small amount of the drippings, water, and some flour/cornstarch. Just be sure to taste it in case you need to add more water if it is too salty. Let boil and thicken and enjoy!
