In the 1800's turkeys were kept live on the farm.
For 3 days before Christmas, a turkey had a walnut thrust down its' throat 3 x a day
and a glass of sherry once a day.
Then it was killed and cooked for Christmas dinner.
The meat was said to have been delicious.
It was tender and had a wonderful nutty flavour to it .
The turkey should also have enjoyed its' last days in sherry bliss.
Turkey farmers...... take note
Flavoured turkeys can be in great demand
