Christmas is right around the corner so we’ve created this tasty Cranberry Christmas Turkey recipe to be the elegant centrepiece of your dinner table this festive season.
It takes a few simple steps to prepare your turkey, then your oven will do the rest! This Cranberry Christmas Turkey is full of flavour, and the combination of the sweet cranberries with the meat is a delight for the tastebuds and the Christmas dinner table.
Never cooked turkey for your Christmas feast? With Christmas only a few days away, perhaps this easy recipe is one you can try this year.
In America during Thanksgiving, turkey is served with cranberry sauce to complement the meat and stuffing. In this recipe we combine the cranberries within the stuffing mixture to add a beautiful aroma and flavour to the turkey as it roasts to perfection.
We created this Cranberry Christmas Turkey for the team at Ansell.
They set us the challenge of creating a bunch of recipes that requires the use of food grade gloves. We’d never used gloves before in food preparation but now that we have, we’re never going back. Not only do the gloves keep your food free of any contaminants from your hands, they also keep your hands beautifully clean. Keep a handy dispenser pack in your kitchen for all sorts of food prep; chopping onions and garlic, rolling meatballs, rolling truffles, handling raw meat or breaking up cooked chickens.
We hope you and you family enjoy the Cranberry Christmas Turkey and have a wonderful festive season xx
