Kitchen Hint of the Day!

The best way to thaw turkey is on a shallow baking sheet in the refrigerator, in its original packaging, allowing 24 hours for every 5 pounds of bird. But if it’s Thanksgiving morning and you’ve forgotten to stick the bird in the fridge, the fastest, safest method of thawing frozen poultry fast is to place it – still wrapped in plastic – in a bowl (or bucket) of cold water. Check the water regularly and change it as water warms up – you should never use hot water, as it will promote bacterial growth.

Never stuff a turkey or other fowl and leave it overnight, even in the refrigerator. Cooking the bird may not kill all the bacteria, and hundreds of cases of food poisoning occur every year because birds are stuffed and then left for too long before roasting.

If your roasted chicken or turkey tends to be too dry, try stuffing a whole apple inside the bird before roasting. (Just toss the apple afterward.) You can also line the bottom of the pan with lemon and onion slices. They’ll give the bird a lovely flavor and ensure it stays moist.
