Heat the oven to 160°C (140°C in a fan oven), 325°F, gas 3.

Stir together all the stuffing ingredients, season with ground black pepper and stuff into the turkey cavity.

Mix together the butter, salt and pepper. Rub the mixture over the outside of the turkey and under the skin. Truss the turkey.

Roast until the meat thermometer reads 80°C (about 3 1/2 to 4 hours), basting occasionally with the meat juices. Cover loosely with foil if the turkey browns too quickly. Allow the turkey to rest for 30 minutes before carving.

Serve on a platter with fresh herbs, vegetables and fruit of your choosing, such as bay leaves, parsley, rosemary sprigs, sage, pattypan squash, cherry tomatoes, apples, grapes, pears and cranberries.
