All our turkeys come from Red Tractor assured British farms, many of which are here in East Anglia. We offer both free range turkeys and turkeys that have been reared free to roam in large airy barns with natural daylight and good ventilation. Our turkeys are given perches and pecking objects to encourage them to interact and be active during the day, at night they are encouraged to roost and sleep. They eat a mix of wheat and soya with vitamins and minerals to ensure they are given a balanced diet to meet their needs.
Preparation & Usage
- For best results remove from refrigerator for 1 hour prior to cooking. Preheat oven to 200°C, Fan 180°C, Gas Mark 6. Remove from packaging.
- Remove the giblet bag and neck from the body cavity and place to one side. For cook time, please see the weight label on the front of the bag (cook time is calculated by the weight of the turkey at 20 minutes per kg + 70 minutes). Place the turkey into a deep roasting tray and add 500ml of water to the tray around the bird. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
- Cook in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes baste the turkey and reduce the oven temperature to 160°C / Fan 140°C / Gas Mark Once cooked, remove from the oven and check the turkey is piping hot throughout and the juices run clear. If juices are pink, return the turkey to the oven for a further 15 minutes and recheck. Cover with foil and allow to rest for 30 minutes before carving. This retains more of the juices for a more succulent meat.
