It was wonderful to see Roz’s praise for our Turkey on her blog in January.
My best ever turkey came this year from East Ferry Farm in Co Cork. Delivered by Fastway, it was also the most efficient operation. I didn’t have to ask for giblets, as they came with it (why don’t they always?), and they made a terrific gravy. The turkey broth afterwards is always a good indicator of a good bird, and it cooled to a thick, flavoursome jelly. I am booking next year’s (in case I am cooking again) which is as good as I can say.
The farm also does geese and chickens, so it’s worth seeking them out before next Christmas.
