I have to buy a turkey crown this year know nothing about them and would like some advice. Is there a good place to buy one or are they all about the same wherever you buy from?

Best to try your local butchers, not seen any in the supermarkets.

amazon or play.com dont sell them :p

I guess they are all the same, I know we got ours from Tescos & it was bloody expensive !!! that's the last time I go shopping with the missus ! I'd be quick though as I should imagine there wont be many left.

Don't get why people pay extra for a crown. It's basically an average piece of meat with the best bits removed. Madness

There were some nice looking ones in morrinsons x

I've seen them in Farm Foods.

Turkey crowns are nice, you pay a bit more per Kg for the ease of not having the legs,wings and carcass of the turkey in the weight.. so IMO works out about the same really. The only problem with them is that people tend to over-cook them and make them a bit dry.

I go blind folded and sniff out the deals X) Turkey crowns aint on special offer this week :D

Another bonus to them s that they dont take as much space in the oven, so you can cook a few other things, i have had them a few times, i would choose the crown personally, but the hubby prefers a full turkey

If you live near london, Smithfield meat market does awesome crowns. They are huge

If you are near Bedford, I know a great place

Just buy a turkey and take the legs etc. Off

Pretty simple to do. Plus if you de bone the legs, stuff and roll them you'll have something tasty to serve with your dry breast (so to speak)
#23
Costco have them if you are a member
#24
Got ours from asda yesterday, they had plenty, but sure they will sell out fast

When roasting meat, the bones release flavour into it and provide a basis to make stock/gravy or soup from.

I think people who buy crowns feel a bit out of their depth at xmas time and want something easy they can shove in the oven and forget.

If you are worried about cooking times and not drying out the breast, buy a whole bird, remove the wishbone and legs (debone thighs and roll with stuffing, roll into a sausage shape in clingfilm then in foil - clingfilm won't melt) leave wings on for stability. Pop herbs, citrus in the cavity and butter under the skin as well as any stuffing mixture in the neck (and bacon on top if desired) and make a foil tent to cover.

That way the legs will cook evenly as well as the breast no need to just buy a crown.

i bought mine from morrisons this year, i normally buy the crown from asda.
whatever you do dont buy that frozen turkey joint from iceland i tested one out a few weeks back and also a pork joint whilst the pork was very nice and was tender and not dry.
the turkey was very dry and had an awful taste to it.

Personal service, more choice, support local businesses. Also not all supermarkets are cheaper.

I bought a crown this year, i'm certainly not out of my depth, you may enjoy using the dripping as gravy, or chewing on the giblets, knock yourself out gordon ramsey

most of the flavour from my gravy will come from the vegetables etc, and certainly won't be eating any of the fat and blood that pours out of the meat and bones to make gravy, thanks very much.

point is, people like their food how they like their food, you like it your way, good on you son! crack on!

most of my family only eat white meat of the turkey, therefore the rest would go to waste anyway.
