Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the lemon juice into a large bowl. Peel the apples and pears, leaving the stalks on, then toss in the juice. Meanwhile, bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil. Lower in the apples and pears, then cover and poach for 30 mins or until the fruit just gives to a sharp knife. Peel the shallots while you’re waiting.

  • STEP 2

    Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Add the oil and butter to a smallish roasting tin, then add the drained apples, pears and the shallots. Brush the fruit with a layer of the jelly or jam and roast for 1 hr until softened and golden. Turn the pears and apples around in the fat a few times during cooking, brushing twice more with the glaze. Serve spooned around the turkey, decorated with bay leaves.

RECIPE TIPS
GET AHEAD

The fruit can be poached up to 2 days ahead and kept in the fridge. Roast the fruit and shallots up to 1 day ahead, then reheat in the bottom of the oven or in the microwave on the day, brushing with a little more glaze if needed.
