Apricot Glazed Turkey Breast

By mid May - I was ready for some baked turkey!!  This recipe was perfect for a Sunday lunch.

1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp black pepper
dash salt
1 bone in turkey breast (5 lbs)

Combine preserves, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Place turkey breast on a rack in a large shallow roasting pan.  Bake uncovered at 325 for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until meal thermometer reads 170, basting every 30 minutes with apricot mixture.  (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly).  Cover and stand 15 minutes before slicing.
