Thanksgiving Thursday!

Yes, thanksgiving is this Thursday! Hopefully you have made plans with family and friends and everyone knows what they are bringing.  We sometimes get absorbed in all the details, we forget something.  The turkey seems to be one of those forgotten items. We buy it early to get our perfect size or we  purchase it just a day or two before the holiday.  Now we have a frozen turkey and it is Wednesday!


No fear! If you were prepared, you can thaw it in the refrigerator, at a rate of four pounds a day thawing.  If you were not prepared, you will need to do a cold water thaw. Keep the turkey in the package, thaw in cold water, changing the water every 30 minutes and thawing at a rate of 30 minutes per pound.


With all the different ways to make your turkey, you may want to have two!  The most popular is the traditional oven roasted or using a table top roaster.  You can also do a variation on that method with the new roasting bags and not having to worry about basting.  Deep frying and smoking are gaining in popularity due to the unique flavor they have and known for their moistness. However you choose, remember 180 degrees is considered a done turkey.  If problems do arise, you always have the Turkey Hotline to call – 1-800-BUTTERBALL.
