125ml apple cider
60ml apple cider vinegar
2 Valencia oranges, zested and juiced
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 lime, juiced
60ml olive oil
½ tsp smoked paprika
½ tsp garlic granules
¼ tsp La Baleine Coarse Sea Salt
1 tsp whole black peppercorns
5 sprigs thyme
1 sprig rosemary

Turkey + Stuffing:
240g cubed bread
½ onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
50g whole fresh cranberries
20g candied orange peels (optional—see recipe)
60 ml bone broth or chicken stock
70g butter, room temperature
1 tsp garlic granules
1 tsp La Baleine Coarse Sea Salt
¼ tsp freshly cracked pepper
1 tbsp sage, finely chopped
1 tsp thyme, finely chopped
½ tsp smoked paprika
1 lemon, sliced into quarters
1 orange, sliced into quarters 



  1. Place turkey in a large bowl or baking dish, then combine all marinade ingredients and pour over turkey.  Place in refrigerator and allow to marinate for about 24 hours, flipping halfway through.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C , 160°C fan or Gas Mark 4.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cubed bread, onion, celery, cranberries, candied orange peels and mix with broth/stock and ¼ reserved marinade. Remove turkey from marinade (reserving for later) and place on a cutting board, then add the stuffing mixture inside the large cavity.Mix together butter, garlic granules, sea salt, pepper, sage, thyme, and smoked paprika, then rub mixture all over skin and under the skin of the breasts, then truss using If You Care Kitchen Twine.
  4. Place turkey inside the center of an If You Care Extra Large Roasting Bag with the seam side up inside a roasting tin and add the lemon and orange slices. Secure the open end of the bag by tightly folding upward as many times as possible, then roast for 2 ½ hours.
  5. Carefully remove turkey from oven and carefully cut or rip the top of the bag to expose the top of the turkey and place back in the oven to brown for another 30 minutes or until desired doneness.
  6. When turkey is complete, allow to rest for 30 minutes and remove stuffing, then carve and enjoy!

Tip: don’t forget to reserve the juices at the bottom of the bag for an easy, mess-free gravy!
