The biggest meal of the year can be quite a challenge, especially if it's the first time your turn has come around to cook for a large family and maybe other guests too. Many families wouldn't hear of anything but the traditional turkey and ham, in which case give in gracefully and be grateful that you have been spared the agony of choice - and it is in any case the ideal solution when a lot of servings are required.

It keeps for ages and makes a particularly lovely gift — one batch will fill quite a few boxes.”
