Christmas Turkey cooking times

Is it your turn to do the Christmas cooking this year? Not sure what size turkey or goose to buy?

We have a few tips for you….

Firstly, always unwrap your bird and place it either in a refrigerator or cool larder. Remember to remove the giblets and keep in the fridge until you need them. If your bird is frozen, thawing takes around 24-30 hours:- pat dry with a dry cloth and it will roast to perfection.
