Amazing !! I thought I had ordered a turkey joint for 4, but, by mistake I ordered this, which feeds 12. I was getting stressesd whether I should cook it from chilled or frozen (as per the instructions) but I need not have worried. From frozen, It cooked beautifully and added slices of smoked streaky bacon to cover the joint after an hour The juices (not fat) produced went on to make amazing gravy (add a splash of sherry !!). Put it this way, it should have served 12, however, my friend that came for Christmas & Boxing Day lunch has demolished the lot as he asked to take the leftovers into work as he was working overnight Christmas & Boxing Day. Have already purchased another one for Easter.
Being an ex chef we normally have a full Turkey as I prefer the dark meat rather than the white breast and so full of flavour. Following a hand operation in November left to my wife to cook. It was ideal to purchase a crown, although I was sceptical as to quality. How wrong I was. Fabulous joint. So full of flavour , tender. Loved it. Very Important however must follow instructions and let it rest for at least 30 mins covered. Great value for money. But buy buy, don't wait for Christmas. How wrong I was.
Absolutely fantastic. So much meat. Easy to prepare. Easy to serve. Tastes lovely!
I love it
I buy this every year, we love it.
