    About this recipe: This is a simple way to prepare a turkey without stuffing. The secret ingredient is butter - it enhances the bird's natural flavour. When the turkey is done, the juices may be used to prepare a gravy by adding cornflour 1 tablespoon at a time until the gravy begins to thicken.

    Serves: 10 

    • 1 whole turkey
    • 125g butter
    • 1 cup water
