Coronation Turkey Stuffed Jackets


1 tbsp rape seed oil
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 tbsp mild curry paste
1 tsp tomato puree
1 tbsp red wine
125ml chicken stock
1 bay leaf
Sea salt and black pepper
1 tsp sugar
Juice of ½ a lemon
450ml good quality mayonnaise
4 tbsp apricot puree (made from 250g ready-to-eat dried apricots and boiled)
2 tbsp double cream, lightly whipped
500g free-range cooked Totally Traditional Turkey, diced
4-6 large potatoes, baked
Paprika, to garnish


Heat a tablespoon of rapeseed oil in a frying pan, add the chopped onion and cook on a low heat for 3 minutes. Then add the curry paste and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the tomato puree, red wine, chicken stock and bay leaf, season well with sea salt and black pepper and bring to the boil. Add the sugar and the lemon juice and simmer for 5 – 10 minutes, strain and cool. Then slowly add the curry mixture to 450ml of good quality mayonnaise, then stir in two tablespoons of apricot puree and fold in the softly whipped cream and cooked turkey.

To serve, cut a cross in the potato, but not all the way through and fill with the coronation turkey and sprinkle with paprika.


If you make too much apricot puree, freeze the rest for future use.
