  • 2-3 lbs  Organic bone-in turkey breast or half turkey
  • 1/4 cup  apricot jam
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 small leek, chopped
  • 8-10 fresh figs


  • Rinse turkey breast and place into a baking dish
  • Make the marinade by whisking together the apricot jam, balsamic vinegar, water, olive oil, chopped oregano and sea salt. Pour over turkey.
  • Cover the pan and refrigerate for at least an hour.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place pan of turkey with marinade in preheated oven and roast for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until juices run clear. A meat thermometer should read approximately 170 degrees F.

  • To serve, cut the turkey into slices and arrange the figs and leeks on the platter around the slices. Drizzle the juices from the baking dish over the turkey slices.

Fresh Figs not in Season?
Dried figs work well for this recipe…just soak them in warm water for about 30 minutes first.

This is a versatile recipe!
Use boneless turkey breast for even easier carving presentation and kitchen clean up! I’ve even used this recipe to roast a whole chicken – delicious!
