12 portions
  • 1 smoked turkey
  • 1 bottle Red wine
  • 2 onions, big
  • 1 celery
  • 1 kilo apple
  • 1/4 kilos walnut, chopped
  • 90 grams butter
  • 1 jet oil
  • 1 pinch curry powder, to taste
  • 1 pinch black pepper, to taste


Two or three days before Christmas Eve, remove the turkey from its package and let it marinate with the red wine in a deep dish. During the next two days and even before putting it in the oven, turn the turkey from time to time, so that it is impregnated with wine everywhere. The amount to use of wine will depend on the size of the turkey.
Preheat the oven to 200 ° C.
Chop the onion finely and sauté it in the butter and the oil drizzle.
Add the chopped celery and fry it. Add the apples, peeled and chopped into cubes about 1 cm and mix very gently.
Add the chopped walnut, season with curry, salt, pepper and 1 cup of red wine.
Mix very softly and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the apples are cooked but firm, without mashing them.
Bake the turkey for about 2 hours, when the wine is cooked and the turkey is heated, continuously bathing the top part to prevent drying.


Once out of the oven, arrange in the serving dish or tray, the apple filling in the hole and next to the turkey, and serve the slices with a little filling to the side. It is a light way to enjoy the main course of Christmas.


You should not put the stuffed apples in the oven, they would fall apart becoming puree.

Efectivamente es una receta muy sencilla y ligera. El pavo es ahumado, por lo tanto, además del vino tinto, no necesita ningún aliño más. El "relleno" es más una guarnición, que si va sazonada con sal, pimienta y un poco de vino en que se ha marinado el pavo.

Incompleto Su receta me parece demasiado superflua... no provee ningún detalle acerca de los aliños recomendados para marinar el pavo.   El sabor del pavo es muy importante para el tipo de acompañado o relleno sugerido.
