Set Turkey on a rack in a large roasting tin and cover with slices of bacon and cover with a large piece of foil. Place in a pre-heated oven at 160°C and allow 40mins per kg. When cooked, wings should be easily removed and juices running clear. Leave to rest for 45 mins before serving. Chefs Tip: Pour all the Turkey stock into a bowl and set aside for your roasting your potatoes and making your gravy.
Farm Fresh County Down Turkeys
Our Turkeys are grown for us using traditional farming methods 5 miles outside Saintfield, where they are allowed to roam freely outdoors during the daylight, with naturally ventilated barns with plenty of space and fresh air provided for them to roost in the hours of darkness.The birds are dry plucked with wax before being dry aged for at least fourteen days to develop a fantastic flavour
We recommend, when ordering your turkey, approximately 750g per person. e.g. 4 – 5 kg Turkey for 6 – 8 persons. Farm fresh Turkeys can also be ordered Boned, for an additional £7.00 or Boned & Stuffed, for an additional £11.50. Icons are available on the Christmas page below our Turkeys if you wish to avail of either of these services when ordering.
