Countdown to Turkey Day – Day 6

Thawing the Turkey

For those of you planning on making a large frozen turkey… you need to start thinking about thawing methods and if you plan on refrigerator thawing your large bird… then plan out when you need to start thawing based on the weight of the bird.

Remember you need about 1 day of refrigerator thawing for every 4 pounds of meat… so for a 24 pound turkey… today is the day you need to move it from the freezer to the refrigerator.

If you have only one refrigerator and space is tight… you may want to consider thawing your large bird in a water bath…. you will need about 30 minutes per pound to do that…. which works out to just 12 hours for a 24 pound bird… in any case… today is decision day for you.. decide what method will work best for you.

Finalizing the Menu

Okay, it’s Friday… and you are down to 6 days before the holiday… it’s a good idea to finalize your intended menu…. this way it gives you time to purchase what you need this weekend.
