Jamie Oliver The Best Turkey in the World with cranberry butter stuffing Recipe on Jamie’s Best Ever Christmas

Jamie Oliver cooks the Best Turkey in the World with cranberry butter stuffing on Jamie’s Best Ever Christmas.

Jamie says: “In my books, the perfect bird is 6.5kg-8kg in weight because that’s a good size to handle, feeds about 10 to 14 people and has better flavour than bigger birds. If you’re buying from a small producer, like the lovely turkey I used from my mate Paul Kelly, you’ll often find these birds come with their own cooking instructions. Really good-quality birds do cook in a shorter time so follow the instructions if it has them.”

The ingredients are: 6.5-8kg turkey, 2-4 clementines, Rosemary, bay or thyme sprigs, 2-3 carrots, 3 onions, peeled and 2 celery sticks.

For the butter: 1 x 250g pack of butter, 75g dried cranberries, really finely chopped, Few sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves picked, 4 fresh rosemary sprigs, leaves picked, Few sprigs of fresh sage, leaves picked, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and 1 clementine.
