Serves: 2 

  • 1 pear
  • 4 raisins
  • 1 walnut half, broken in half lengthways
  • 4 whole dried apricots
  • 1 sweet eating apple, cored and cut into thin wedges
  • 1 1/4 (540g) tins grapefruit segments, well drained

Prep:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Slice the pear in half lengthways, core, remove the stem and set each half on a plate with the cut side down. This is the body of the turkey. Cut 2 raisins in half to make 4 eyes and set the eyes onto the narrower part of the pear. Cut a small slice from one end of the 2 remaining raisins and stick a raisin below the eyes to make beaks. Press a broken piece of walnut, bumpy side up, into each pear below the beaks to make wattles.
  2. Trim the dried apricots into 4 feet with 3 fat toes and place two feet at the bottom of each pear. Arrange apple wedges alternating with grapefruit sections in a fan shape around the top of the turkey, for feathers.
