Turkey small (feeds 8-10)
Seasonal organic veg box - medium
Turkey: Preheat the oven to 190°C/Gas 5. Remove the giblets. Transfer to a large roasting tin, breast-side up, and brush the breast and legs with melted butter before seasoning. Cover the whole bird with foil to protect the skin from over browning and transfer to the oven for 45 mins/kg (40 mins fan assisted oven). Every hour, baste with its juices. 30 mins before the end of the cooking time, remove the foil to allow the skin to brown up. Check if the meat is thoroughly cooked by inserting a carving fork into the thickest area of both breast and thighs. If the juices are pink, return to the oven for another 15 mins, then test again.
