(below), turning the bird over halfway through
the cooking time. Poultry, because of its shape, has
a tendency to cook unevenly, especially in very
bony parts. Turning the bird during roasting helps to
cook these areas evenly.
6. STAND for 5-10 minutes wrapped in foil after
cooking before carving. The standing time is very
important, as it completes the cooking process.
7. Ensure poultry is thoroughly cooked before eating.
Whole poultry is completely cooked when the juices
run clear from the inside thigh when it is pierced with
a sharp knife. Poultry portions should be pierced
with a sharp knife through the thickest part to ensure
that the juices are clear and the flesh is firm.
