Instructions
Turkey:
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F
  2. Rinse the turkey and pat dry with a clean paper towel.
  3. Blend the chopped lemons, rosemary, sage, garlic, and onions in a large bowl, and spoon into the turkey cavity, folding the skin flap under to hold it in place.
  4. Blend the olive oil, Dijon mustard, chopped rosemary, grated lemon peel, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the seasoned mixture all over the turkey.
  5. Place the turkey breast side up in a large roasting pan.
  6. Roast for 3 3/4 to 4 1/2 hours, until thoroughly cooked, or when a meat thermometer registers 160°F.
  7. Remove the herbs, lemons and onions from the cavity, and transfer the turkey to a platter as you make the gravy.
Gravy:
  1. Add the juices to a measuring cup. Spoon off the fat from the top, and set aside.
  2. Add the reserved fat to a large saucepan and heat over a medium-high setting. Saute the garlic and shallots until fragrant, or about 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the flour, and cook until a golden brown.
  4. Now add the pan juices and turkey stock, stirring as it thickens.
  5. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 or 4 minutes.
  6. When it’s ready, whisk in the lemon peel, fresh sage, and crème fraîche just before serving.
