  • 1 onion peeled

  • 5 tbsp honey (or enough to cover chicken)

  • 1 turkey

  • 2 tsp whole grain mustard

  • 500ml cider (strong and dry)

  • 1 carrot peeled

  • 1 apple cored


<ol> <li>Cut the onion, apple and carrot into chunks and chuck into a roasting tin.</li> <li>Wash turkey and remove any giblets, and cover in honey, mustard and salt and pepper. Place breast side down in the roasting pan.</li> <li>Pour cider around the turkey. Cover in tinfoil and cook in the oven at the temperature and time suggested on the turkey wrapper.</li> <li>Baste juices every half hour or so, always remembering to recover with the tinfoil so the turkey cooks in its own boozy tent.</li> <li>For the last half hour, turn breast side up covering with more honey and mustard. This will be a delicious moist beast.</li> </ol>

Handy Hint

<p>The cider keeps it succulent without being overpowering. Enjoy and await the compliments!</p>
