In the run-up to turkey day, we're sharing our top Thanksgiving cooking tips to help make your day go smoothly.
Rethink your turkey.
Share meals with others, use leftover turkey to create delicious recipes, and make turkey stock or broth.
3 safe ways to thaw a turkey.
Thaw a turkey safely in the refrigerator, by the cold-water method, or in the microwave following the owner's instructions manual.
How long to hold your turkey in the oven.
You can hold the turkey in a 200°F oven, wrapped tightly for up to two hours. After that, the turkey will likely dry out. Check turkey temperatures with a meat thermometer to ensure it does not go below 140°F.
Frozen turkey shelf life.
The USDA advises that poultry will remain safe in your freezer, indefinitely. However, for optimum quality, we both recommend no more than 12 months stores in a freezer.
Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
