Make it Easy on Yourself Thanksgiving – Tip #4

Did you remember to start thawing your turkey? Do it now!

Just put it on a glass plate or in a glass baking dish on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator. You don’t want a rock solid frozen bird to deal with Thursday morning, and even if it’s not completely thawed by then, the little bit left it needs will be easy to do in a cold water bath.

Remember you don’t want to leave it on the counter overnight for thawing. Raw poultry is one of the worst culprits for food-borne illness. And a thawed turkey will mean you can get it good and dry for roasting instead of steaming!
