Ever since reading The Time Traveler’s Wife, I’ve been intrigued by the blackened turkey they were eating for Christmas in it.
Having bought a big turkey recently, I decided to find the recipe.
I’m pretty sure it must be this one.
Sadly, however, it looks like a lot of work for an ordinary Sunday roast, so I don’t think I’ll be making it this time round.
But it’s definitely on my to-do list for whenever there’s a suitable occasion.
Preferably one without my mum, because she sounded absolutely horrified when I told her the recipe: “Can’t you eat the skin? But that’s the best bit of the bird!” she cried.
