Cooking with clingfilm and foil

Rocketroy | Nov 4, 201602:45 AM     1

Started cooking with cling film Christmas 2014 (it hasn't killed me so far) after covering lightly in garlic and herb butter I tightly wrapped a large turkey crown in cling film using at least 4 layers of film then loosely covering it in baking foil but making sure that the foil is crimped so as not to open during baking, then place the crown into a backing tray and half fill with cold water. Bake it for the time specified by its weight less 20 minutes. the result is a fab turkey joint cooked perfectly throughout. All you doubters out there should take take the bull (or turkey) by the horns and give it a try and let us know how it went.
