Turkey Tip of the Day

  • Don’t let Thanksgiving dinner go to the birds. Keep raw turkey away from your other dishes to avoid cross-contamination.
  • The USDA recommends thawing your frozen turkey in the fridge; find out how long that will take.
  • Don’t purchase a fresh turkey until 1 or 2 days before Thanksgiving. It will spoil if you purchase it too soon.
