Well it's Christmas is in a few days. I think in America you have goose at Christmas but we have Turkey in England.
Anyway any tips to get a lovely moist Turkey and a great gravy would be great. This is what I am planning to do.
I am going to cover my Turkey with streaky bacon. Season it of course but it on some carrots and onion and garlic and a bit of thyme and cook it slowly. I'm also going to put a bit of water in the roasting tin but I am going to do something a but different. Some people put the water in the tray and put the the Turkey on top but for me it tastes a bit wet when you do that. I'm going to put some water in a small oven proof container and put that in the roasting tin and cover the whole tin in foil so it kind of stem roasts it but doesn't get to wet.
For the gravy I have made some chicken stock and reduced it. I am going to take my turkey out the tray and drain the juices of and put them in the freezer to separate the fat and meat juice. Then I'm going to de glaze the pan with some red wine and then add the stock back in with some Bisto and a stock cube if needed. Bare in mind there is some veg in the tray as well for even more flavour.
Any tips that may make it better would be great.
