There is something wonderfully satisfying about putting a beautiful turkey sitting in the middle of the table on Christmas day and serving your salivating family. If cooked properly the turkey can be a deliciously moist bird which can be enjoyed by all the family. Plan every aspect of your Christmas cookery carefully and meticulously and then you can relax a little more on the actual day.
This is my Mum’s recipe and they’ve never failed me. There’s no doubt that the fat from the roast meat makes the best roast potatoes. Alternatively if you ever roast a goose or duck save every drop of the fat and freeze it down in ice cube trays, then bag it to use at your leisure – even a couple added to your oil will help the flavour.
