    About this recipe: Turkey does not get easier than this! Just season the turkey with salt and pepper and pop it in the oven to slow cook for six hours.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 1 (4.5kg) whole turkey, neck and giblets optional
    • salt and ground black pepper, to taste
    • 80ml water, or as needed

    Method

    1. Preheat oven to 140 C / Gas 1.
    2. Season turkey with salt and pepper and place, breast-side down, in a roasting pan; add neck and giblets. Pour water into pan.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven, basting as needed, until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 6 hours. A cooking thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh should read 74 degrees C. Continue to roast until meat falls off the bone if desired.
