Turkey in Gütersloh, Christmas turkey, shopping and recipes in Gütsel
Roast turkey is an alternative to Christmas goose or Christmas duck. Gütsel presents recipes and sources of supply for turkeys, for example online at Biohof Mertens Wiesbrock.
Locally farmed turkey meat is a better alternative not only from a health point of view, but also from other points of view. But be careful when buying. A court’s order form states that undeliverable deliveries will also be charged. The Biohof Mertens-Wiesbrock is better positioned with a real online shop and a wide range of farm, handicraft products, mostly from the region, some from their own farm, and an ambitious delivery service.
Recipe for »Natural Turkey« in a roasting tube
Wash the turkey, rub with spices and fill with baked fruit. Place in a roasting tube and let it cook at 150 degrees (5 to 6 kilos about 3.5 hours, 7 to 8 kilos a good 4 hours, 10 to 12 kilos about 5 hours, 16 kilos about 6 hours). About 20 minutes before the end of cooking, cut open the roasting tube and let the roast crisp up at 180 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. The turkey can also be prepared without a roasting tube – in this case it is best on a wire rack.
In the meantime, prepare a sauce from the gravy. In addition, for example, potato dumplings, red cabbage and a French red wine.
