If you have always
resisted going for the less expensive frozen turkey because
you are worried about thawing it, have no fear. Here is the
foolproof way to easily thaw your frozen turkey... the safe
way. So whether you purchased your frozen turkey for Thanksgiving
or Christmas dinner, you can unthaw it and still plan your
perfect holiday meal.
First make sure
your sink is clean, and rinse well to ensure any soap or cleaner
residue is gone. Fill the sink with cold water and immerse
turkey. Drain and refill every thirty minutes. It will take
approx 30 minutes per pound of turkey to thaw.
You can also thaw
a frozen turkey in the refrigerator, but it will take 24 hours
per 5 pounds, meaning it will take several days to thaw a
frozen turkey using this method!
