  • turkey
  • 3 -4 medium-sized onions
  • chopped celery
  • chopped carrots
  • 2 – 3 twigs of rosemary
  • bay leaves
  • half a pack of butter
  • sea salt
  • ground black pepper
  • half a nutmeg, grated
  • 2 – 3 clementines, sliced in half


Step 1

To start, get the turkey out of the fridge for at least two and a half hours before cooking it. Next, in your roast pan, add the chopped onions, celery, carrots, fresh rosemary, bay leaves, and turkey giblets. Set it aside. Now, rub half a pack of softened butter into the turkey, then season it with salt, ground black pepper, and half a nutmeg.

Step 2

Place the turkey on the trivet, then place one to two sliced clementines inside the turkey as well as some fresh rosemary, and some more butter. Wrap the top part of the turkey with aluminum foil, then place it in a 350 degrees F oven and bake. (Baking time is 35 minutes per kilo so it depends on how heavy your turkey is.) Halfway through the cooking, remove the foil, and baste the turkey with its cooking juices.
