Quantity of Free Range Bronze Feathered Turkey (with giblets) in trolley 0
- Serves 8
A free range bronze-feathered turkey makes for a particularly impressive Christmas Day centrepiece with a richer, deeper flavour your family will love
Renowned for their rich flavour and succulence, bronze-feathered turkeys are a slower-growing breed, which means they tend to boast full-flavoured meat and a wonderfully firm texture.These birds are reared in either Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, East Anglia, Southern Ireland or Essex farms. Fed a natural, cereal-based diet, they have access to open pastures, meaning they range freely, coming and going as they please, just like our other free range birds. All this freedom, natural light and fresh air makes for a healthy bird and an especially tasty meat for your Christmas table.
For Christmas orders this product has a use by date of 26th December 2018.
Save the giblets that come with this turkey for making delicious gravy. Simply simmer in water and use this stock as your gravy base.

Oven instructions: For best results cook in a Fan oven set at 140°C, this gives a lower temperature, longer time cook for a more succulent turkey. Calculated cooking time for this turkey is shown on the front price weight label. Size and thickness may vary, cook times are given as guidance. Preheat oven. Place turkey in a large roasting tin. Brush the breast and legs with melted butter or oil. Cover with foil, tucking the foil down and around the sides of the turkey keeping the foil inside the tin. Place roasting tin in the centre of oven. During cooking: Halfway through cook time remove the turkey from the oven, spoon the juices in the bottom of the roasting tin over the turkey to baste, recover with the foil and return to the oven. For the last 15 minutes of cooking remove the foil and baste the turkey again with the cooking juices. End of cooking: Pierce the thickest part of the thigh with a skewer to check that the juices run clear. If more cooking is required re-cover with foil and return to the oven, checking every 15 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the oven, cover with foil and leave to rest for a minimum of 30 minutes.
