How To: truss a turkey

How To: truss a turkey

Current rating: 4 from 1 votes.

Trussing helps keep the bird compact during roasting, and ensures even cooking of all the meat.

  • Step 1
    Lay a 1m piece of string on a board, place the turkey on top so that the string runs across its back and through the middle of each wing (make sure you have an even piece of string on each side).

 

  • Step 2
    Run both pieces, parallel to each other, along the gap between the legs and the body to under the ankle of each drumstick. Twist the string around the ankles and pull the legs together. Secure with a knot.

 

  • Step 3
    Pass the string under the parson’s nose and tie again to secure to the legs.
