If you’re planning to don an apron this Christmas and get stuck into stuffing, we’ve gathered our favourite turkey tips from our team of chefs. From brilliant basting to turning your turkey upside down, make your festive feast fabulous.
There are a myriad of ways to rub and baste your turkey, however, the traditional method of using butter mixed with herbs is a firm favourite with families around the world. Mix your room temperature butter with fresh herbs, thyme and rosemary work well, and starting from the neck of the bird, slowly work your hand between the meat and the skin, being careful not to go too fast at the skin may tear. Once separated, apply your butter and herb mixture lightly patting the skin down in place.
