Difference between White & Bronze Turkeys - The classic White-feathered turkeys have become a Christmas favourite. Succulent, tasty and great for those who love healthy breast meat while its generous thighs and wings cater for those at the table who prefer darker meat. White Turkeys have a more subtle flavour comapred to the Bronze turkeys, yet still delicious.
The Bronze turkey is more closely related to the wild turkey in both appearance and taste. The popularity of the bronze turkey has risen dramatically in the last few years; with many people enjoying their richer, gamier taste.
Turkey Crown on the bone - a whole turkey with the legs removed and the legs placed back into the box.
Turkey Crown off the bone - pure turkey breast, can be stuffed & wrapped in bacon on request.
Cooking Tips - make sure your turkey is taken out of the fridge at least an hour before putting it in the oven. We recommend that you do not stuff your turkey, the turkey will cook more evenly this way. We recommend filling the cavity loosely with aromatic vegetables (carrot, celery). Coat your turkey with vegetable oil/olive oil/butter and season heavily. You could also cover with bacon. Always rest your turkey for at least 25 minutes.
