We sometimes forget we have an oven.
These days, the air fryer has become such an essential piece of kitchen kit that it’s difficult to remember how we functioned without it.
And now that Christmas is looming, one Cork butcher counter has a clever plan prepared for customers who want to air-fry their way through the festive dinner prep.
James Whelan Butchers at Dunnes Stores Bishopstown Court has launched a range of air fryer-friendly Christmas food options, especially handy for people who are just cooking for two or three on the big day.
Take the centerpiece for example – the Christmas roast turkey.
For smaller parties, these can be prepared in-store, to order, air fryer ready. Their 900g Turkey Crown can be topped with a pancetta lattice and cooks in just an hour.
The James Whelan Butchers Boneless Christmas Ham can also be prepared in-store to fit your air fryer basket.
While you’re there, pick up the JWB Homemade Stuffing Pouch too, lovingly handmade with breadcrumbs, herbs, and fresh onions, melted through with rich Irish butter.
Whack it all in the air fryer and get back to watching Home Alone until you hear the beep.
