  • 1 x 6kg turkey

  • ¼ bunch thyme

  • ¼ bunch parsley

  • 2 x sprigs oregano

  • 2 x sprigs rosemary

  • ¼ bunch tarragon

  • 2 x cloves garlic

  • 100g butter

  • 50ml olive oil

  • Murray (pink) salt

  • Pepper

  • 500ml chicken stock

  1. Melt butter and add olive oil.

  2. Take off the heat.

  3. Add the salt pepper and garlic.

  4. Chop the herbs and add them making a fragrant paste. Rub all over the bird and a bit in the cavity.

  5. Fill with stuffing (see Saskia’s own Black Pig Prosciutto & Sage stuffing).

  6. Tie the legs together and bend the wings behind the bird for presentation.

  7. Place in a roasting tray with the chicken stock in the bottom of the pan.

  8. You should leave this for up to three hours out of the fridge

  9. for the turkey to come to room temperature and for the flavours to really absorb. Or you can leave it overnight

  10. and remove the birds from the fridge 3 hours before commencement of cooking.

  11. Roast for 2 hours at 170 degrees Fan Forced

  12. Do no open the oven for the first 40 minutes, but baste the bird at 40 minutes and every 10-15 minutes after that.

Most importantly, cover and rest in a warm spot for 1 hour breast down after taking out of the oven.
