THAWING TIPS… DO NOT THAW YOUR TURKEY AT ROOM TEMPERATURE!!! That allows bacteria to grow, and you don’t want to make yourself or you family sick for Thanksgiving!

  • Refrigerator Thawing: Thaw your turkey in unopened wrapper, breast-side up, on a tray in the refrigerator.  For every four pounds of turkey, allow at least one day of thawing.
  • Cold Water Thawing: Place turkey in unopened wrapper, breast down and cover completely with cold tap water.  Change the water every 30 minutes to keep surface of the turkey cold.  Estimate minimum thawing time to be 30 minutes per pound for a whole turkey.
