TIPS FOR THIS RECIPE

1. If the turkey leg starts to brown too much cover with aluminum foil.

2. We usually roast the turkey at 180ºC (350ºF) but, if you lower the temperature to 150ºC (300ºF), despite taking longer to roast, it has the advantage of enhancing much more the flavors and the meat gets more tender.

3. If you have leftovers, store the meat in the fridge in a properly covered container (to prevent the growth of microorganisms). To avoid drying out the meat, do not reheat the food in the oven, reheat it in the microwave.
