I had my whole Christmas dinner planned and was ready to follow the Nigella recipe's to the letter. I've been really exctied about brining the turkey and got all the ingredients needed. Now comes the problem....my sister-in-law bought the turkey and thought she was doing us a favour by buying a boned and rolled turkey from the butchers. It's good quality but assuming as it's pre-stuffed I can't brine it. What do I do now? I need a recipe asap. Ppppppleas help me.
CAN I BRINE A BONED AND ROLLED TURKEY? BMCP

I make Rocky Road every year but want, this year, to give it as a present. (It is the recipe with two lots of chocolate and brazil nuts and cherries). Can I freeze it or has it a long shelf life, perhaps in the fridge?

For Christmas I will be making the Ham in Coke that I found in one of Nigella's cookbook's. I was wondering if that is a very sweet ham. Many of my family members don't like very sweet meat, or a ham cooked with pineapples and brown sugar, so I was wondering how similar it is to that. Please let me know. Thank you!! Carissa J
I have just started this recipe, but dont know what to do with the saved liquor after the ham is cooked. The recipe says dont throw it way. Please could you give me some ideas as to how to use this Regards Kare
Greetings from the U.S. I am planning to make Nigella's recipe for Ham in Cherry Coke published on page 205 of "Feast". It calls for a boneless mild "cure" ham... Here in the U.S. we have "cured" ham, which is fully cooked. Is this the type of ham I should use? Thank you kindly for you assistance! Fluffyfinch
