Spicy Turkey Tagine (Moroccan) Serves 4
Earlier in the year I did some work for a lovely turkey farm producing Bronze turkeys. Bronze turkeys have a longer life and therefore contain more fat, making them quicker to cook and the meat is juicier and more tender. This year, if you still want to buy a large bird then I would consider removing the wings and the legs and freezing them until a later date. If you have turkey legs frozen and they are not from a Bronze turkey add 20% extra to the cooking time.
