  1. Once the turkey is cooked, tip the juices and fat from the roasting tin into a bowl. Once settled, spoon 2-3 tbsp of the fat back into the tin (discard any remaining fat and return the juices to the roasting tin).
  2. Put the tin on the hob over a medium heat. Stir in the flour with a wooden spoon, scraping up all the sticky bits from the bottom. Add the sherry, simmer for 1 min, then stir in the jelly and thyme. Add the stock and season; simmer until reduced.
