Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, very finely diced
  • 2 celery sticks, finely diced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 450g minced pork belly
  • 435g can unsweetened chestnut purée (we like Merchant Gourmet)
  • 110g fine gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp each finely chopped fresh thyme, sage and curly parsley leaves
  • 100g dried apricots, roughly chopped
  • 2 large free-range eggs, beaten

Method

  1. Place the onion and celery in a pan with the oil. Season with the salt and pepper and gently sweat until the onion is very soft. Add the garlic and fry, stirring, for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  2. Tip the onion mixture into a bowl with all of the remaining ingredients and mix together with your hands. To check that the stuffing is well seasoned, fry a flattened spoonful of it in hot oil, until cooked through. Taste and season as necessary.
  3. Push the stuffing into the neck end of the turkey. Cover with the skin and secure with a skewer.
