FOLLOW THIS HANDY GUIDE TO COOKING YOUR TURKEY TO ACHIEVE PERFECT RESULTS THIS CHRISTMAS!

PRE-OVEN TO 200 OC/400 F/GAS MARK6
PUT THE TURKEY IN THE OVEN AND COOK FOR 15 MINUTES THEN TURN DOWN TO 180 OC/350F/ GAS MARK 4 AND COOK FOR A FURTHER:

4KG (8.8LB) – 2 HOURS
5KG (11LB) – 2 1/4 HOURS
6KG (13.2LB) – 2 1/2 HOURS
7-8KG (15.5-17.7LB) – 3 HOURS
9-11KG (19.8-24.2 LB) 3 1/3 HOURS

PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE ONLY APPROXIMATE TIMES AND WILL VARY FROM BIRD TO BIRD. (ALLOW EXTRA WEIGHT IF STUFFING THE BIRD)

THE BEST WAY TO ENSURE THE BIRD IS FULLY COOKED IS TO USE A THERMOMETER TO ENSURE THE BIRD REACHES A CORE TEMPERATURE OF 720C
THEN DO LET THE BIRD REST FOR AT LEAST HALF AN HOUR – TO AN HOUR AND A HALF, ON THE KITCHEN SIDE, COVERED IN FOIL AND A CLEAN TEA TOWEL. THIS GIVES YOU PLENTY OF TIME TO PREP THE GRAVY AND FINISH THE VEGETABLES!

THE BIRD WILL CARRY ON COOKING WHILE RESTING AND THE INTERNAL TEMPERATURE WILL RISE BY A GOOD 10c
DURING THE RESTING TIME!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, ENJOY!
