Okay here we are, the big deal. Mister Turkey. I've got the slow grown variety and I want to show you what I'm doing this year and also go through the absolute “definites" you must do to guarantee yourself a beautifully cooked turkey.

So first and foremost I'm going to make flavoured ,
I'm using dried cranberries.
Just for about a minute.
Right I've got two fairly decent sized rosemary sprigs here.
About a tablespoon of thyme and then I've got sage. I'm not going it with
salt, a good pinch of pepper and a quarter of a nutmeg. One good pack of quality butter and literally all you have to do now is .

And you just get this bit of skin here, get a spoon in there and you can just literally part the . See what I'm doing?

And you can go pretty much as far as about here, is good. See how easy that is?
So I'm just going to ferry this butter up here.
Just and just literally have a little massage and then all I would do just to guarantee that this skin doesn't slip back, is I'd get a bit of rosemary or a and just secure that there, I don't want this skin going anywhere.

Now, in the cavity I am putting no at all. What I will do however is put a bit of Christmas inside here which comes in the form of a couple of clementines.

It's not going to stop the hot air getting in. What will happen is it will steam a little bit and it will flavour this bird in a nice way.

Here's my stuffing, here's the neck of the turkey. It is touching the bottom of the and it will get really nice good you know decent cooking. And then sort of tuck it in like that. So there you go. Okay. Let's talk about turkey cooking times.

A good quality, a slow growing turkey will cook in nearly half the time of regular standard turkey. So for instance this is about 6 kilos, I'm going to cook it for minutes per kilo.
Plus about 20 minutes at the end. If that was an every day turkey that would be about minutes per kilo plus 20 minutes at the end.
I cook it at degrees Celsius or about 375 degrees Farenheit. And I've put the oven full wack to start with. I'll put the turkey in now. The minute I close the door, I'm going to turn it down to 180. There she is. A beautiful turkey. Nice skin, you can see where the butter's gone in.
Roast turkey, cooked perfectly.
