Description

Our Christmas turkey crowns are specially selected for their ample breast meat from free ranging Devon Bronze turkey flocks, which are free to forage in fields and cherry orchards. The result is standout flavour and mouthwatering succulence. The crown is quicker to cook, easier to carve and is an ideal alternative for those who prefer turkey breast meat, rather than the darker leg meat. We include the giblets so you can make your own gravy at home. Be sure to take a look at our recipe tips for cooking and stock up on cranberry sauce ready to complement this magnificent Christmas roasting joint.

All of our Christmas range delivered on 19th Dec to 24th Dec is guaranteed to stay fresh until Boxing Day *except products containing pastry which are pre frozen. 48 hour deliveries (Highlands & Islands) may have a shorter life depending on dispatch times.

Shelf life: minimum 3 days.

Black feather quills:

It is completely normal to find a few black feather quills with our free-range turkeys. The feathers are a sign of a truly artisanal bird that has been hand finished using a wax plucked process as opposed to a mass production, wet pluck process. This gives you a much better quality bird. The white turkeys that you will find at the supermarket has just as many but because they have a white pigment you cannot see them.

They are harmless and most of any that may be left will shrivel up during cooking. As we hand pluck it is impossible to remove each and every one, please don`t ruin your Christmas day with tweezers trying to remove them!

How to cook the Devon Bronze Turkey Crown

The free-range turkey crown is perfect if you have a smaller table of guests, or who prefer white breast meat to brown leg meat. This crown lends itself to quicker cooking times as well as smaller ovens, making it a popular choice for Christmas Dinner. Simply roast skin side up, and baste throughout. Give your crown plenty of time to rest before carving. The essential giblets are included allowing you to make a proper tasting gravy, while being sure to serve with all the trimmings for a traditional festive spread.

About the cut

Turkey Crown

The turkey crown is the two breasts of the bird, still attached to the bone. This simplifies the cooking process and ensures plump, moist turkey for Christmas dinner. Our whole turkeys are wax plucked to preserve the texture of the meat and are game hung for a minimum of 14 days. The traditional process of game hanging tenderises the meat and concentrates the flavour of the turkey.

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.
