FROM FROZEN

To cook this turkey from frozen, we recommend using a digital meat thermometer - check our website or ask our advisors if you need one.

Weigh your turkey to calculate your cooking time - it needs approximately 18-20 minutes per 450g (lb). We also suggest you sit it at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking - his makes it easier to unwrap. Once it's cooked, rest it for 30 minutes to one hour, to make it even more juicy. Add all these times together and work backwards from when you want to serve up, to see when to switch your oven on.

When you're ready to go, preheat the oven to 170°C / Fan 160°C / Gas 4, and place an oven shelf in the bottom third. Remove your turkey from the freezer and sit in its packaging for 20 minutes at room temperature. Unwrap your turkey and place it on top of a roasting rack inside a roasting tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Cook for 21/2 hours, trying not to open the oven door or let out too much heat.
After this time the turkey should be starting to turn golden.

Carefully take your turkey out of the oven, closing the door to retain the heat, and do your first temperature check. Insert the temperature probe into the meatiest part of the breast, leaving it in place for at least 10 seconds to get an accurate reading. If it reads below 74°C (it almost certainly will at this stage), it needs further cooking.

Tilt the turkey to pour any cooking juices into the roasting tray, and add about three glasses of liquid to the tray - white wine, chicken stock or water, according to taste. Drizzle with a little more olive oil and return to the oven.

Repeat the temperature test after a further 45 minutes, and every 15 - 30 minutes after that - if it's close to 74°C, check it sooner. Remember, all ovens vary! If the turkey is getting too brown, cover loosely with tinfoil. For the final temperature test, check a few places on the breast, including close to, but not touching, the bone. Also check the thickest part of the thigh.

When each point reaches 74°C, remove the turkey from the oven, tip out any more juices to make your gravy, cover the turkey loosely with tinfoil and leave to rest in a warm place for 30 minutes to an hour before carving. Use this time to complete your veg and gravy.

Pour yourself a glass of something tasty, serve up, and enjoy!


FROM DEFROSTED

Before cooking: Gently pat dry your defrosted turkey with kitchen paper and allow to come to room temperature for at least 30 minutes - this will help with even cooking.
Place the turkey in a large roasting tin and drizzle with olive oil, and season generously with salt and pepper. Pour a cup of water into the tin to keep the bird moist during cooking.
We recommend to cook your turkey unstuffed as being stuffed lengthens the cooking time. Instead stuff the cavity with 2-3 peeled and halved onions and bunch of herbs eg. thyme, marjoram and parsley for extra flavour.

Cooking: Weigh your bird to calculate the exact cooking time required.
1. Preheat oven to 230ºC/450ºF/Gas 8
2. Cook for 30 minutes
3. Reduce oven temperature to 180ºC/360ºF/Gas 4
4. Cook for further 15-18 minutes per 450g (lb)

Test: The thickest part of the thigh must be soft when pressed. Another test is to pierce with a meat fork; the juices must run clear. Alternatively insert a meat thermometer, when it reads 70 -75ºC you know its cooked.

Resting: Once your turkey is cooked it is vitally important to let it rest. Remove the bird from oven, tent loosely with foil and rest for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Resting is as important as cooking, as it allows the meat to become moist and tender all the way through. Reserve any juices to make your gravy.

Tip: You can rest your bird in a warm oven (without fan) at 60ºC for up to 60 minutes. This will allow you time to get all your trimmings and accompaniments ready and will reduce the stress.

The Turkey was delicious, the Christmas Pudding was unbelievable and the ancillary sausage meat made some excellent stuffing patties when mixed with herbs. The frozen vegetable packs of red cabbage, parsnips and sprouts added even more value

The Christmas box was a present & the feed back was that it was greatly enjoyed

The Ultimate Christmas Box was excellent but the vegetables let it down so I marked this good. The sprouts were bitter and the parsnips oily. We did enjoy the cabbage. I cooked the first batch of vegetables in the microwave and the second in the oven. There was a slight difference in that the oven... Read More.

We'd just moved house so this cook from frozen turkey & sides was a god send, the instructions based on temperature of the turkey as it cooked were precise and simple to follow and the roast was perfect, moist and crispy in all the right places and proportions. The sides complemented it perfectly, so... Read More.

Great accompiant to the turkey.

Great products but cooking instructions inaccurate to deliver perfect results. Sprouts hard and cauliflower undercooked when instructions followed whereas turkey would've been cremated if I'd cooked for the full time recommended. Christmas pudding best we've had in years. Product quality great but you... Read More.

i have this each year - excellent value. The turkey is tender with plenty of meat - be v careful not to overcook - which I always do slightly!

I've not tried this yet as it is for Christmas, but I happily give 5 stars based on last 2 years purchases of this.
