How to cook The Devon Bronze Whole Turkey

A well roasted turkey always goes down well with its winning combination of white and brown meat, complete with crispy skin. Roast and allow to rest before serving on Christmas day, and use the leftovers in sandwiches, risottos, and festive salads, and boil up the carcass with any vegetables or herbs to make stock for your next roast or soup. Be sure to read our recipe tips for serving suggestions and cooking times.

About the cut

Whole Turkey

The whole turkey became a British favourite for Christmas dinner in the 1950s, as the nation embraced the ample quantities of flavoursome meat after the privations of rationing. Our whole turkeys are wax plucked to ensure optimum texture and are game hung. The traditional process of game hanging for 14 days tenderises the meat and concentrates the flavour of the turkey. The bird is then expertly prepared and hand-dressed and comes with the essential giblets allowing you to make a proper tasting gravy.

About the breed

Devon Bronze

always free range & slow grown

Tasting notes:
sweet, gamey, herbal
Region:
England

Our traditional Devon bronze turkeys are an old-fashioned favourite. This breed are often smaller in size but more full-bodied in taste and texture than turkeys farmed in intensive systems. These special turkeys are sourced from a responsible farm that nurture their flocks on an oat-rich, nutritionally balanced, natural cereal diet that's ethically sourced. The flock are free to roam through cherry orchards and grass meadows, and can forage for insects and grubs. The benefit of the freedom to exhibit natural behaviours results in dense, white, and dark meat, and a superior fat coverage. This natural layer of fat not only makes traditional dry plucking possible, but it means our turkeys don't rely on basting to retain their succulence. Expect deliciously tender, flavoursome meat from our Devon bronze turkeys. Shop now and do Christmas better this year.
