  • How long will a thawed turkey keep in the fridge??

     I wanted to go ahead and buy mine before they get too picked over, but I don't have room in the freezer.

    From Sara Moulton:

     

    Q: :How do you defrost a turkey?

    A: In the refrigerator: Thaw turkey in its unopened package on a platter to catch any defrosting juices that might come out. Allow one day for every four to five pounds of turkey. So, a 15 pound turkey would take three days to defrost. In the sink: Put turkey breast side down, in its unopened package in a sink filled with cold water. Change the water every 30 minutes to keep the temperature cold. Allow 30 minutes for every pound of turkey. So, a 15 pound turkey would take 7 1/2 hours to defrost.
