How do I store a frozen turkey?

Your turkey should be kept in the freezer until it’s ready to thaw, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

But don’t thaw frozen pre-stuffed turkeys — just cook them straight out of the freezer.

How do I store a fresh turkey?

Be sure to buy your fresh turkey one or two days before consumption. You can keep the turkey in your refrigerator ahead of cooking, placed on a tray to avoid leaking.

What are the different types of turkey?

Wondering if it’s worth springing for an organic turkey? Here’s a breakdown of some of your options:

  • Organic turkeys are raised without antibiotics or chemicals. They’re given organic feed and spend time outdoors.
  • Heritage turkey is a leaner meat that tends to dry out more easily. This one is best for smaller group servings, as opposed to a big dinner party.
  • Free-range turkeys — also known as cage-free turkeys — are given more space to roam.
  • Pastured turkeys are similar to free-range turkeys, except they are also given grass to feed on.
  • Kosher turkeys have been killed according to kosher law, drained of blood and salted.

How much turkey to buy per person

Want to make sure everyone is happily fed? The general rule of thumb is to purchase 1 pound of turkey per person. If you want to have some leftovers, buy 1 1/2 pounds of turkey per person. That’ll be enough for a delicious next day meal.
