Dry with absorbent towels, and season inside of turkey with salt and pepper. Rub outside of bird with oil. Stuff with onions, celery, orange, apple, 2 limes and the 1 lemon quartered. Completely fill cavities to keep turkey moist. Melt butter in roasting pan, add water and sliced lemon (add more lemon juice if desired).
