With Thanksgiving just a few days away, it’s likely time for you to start thawing your turkey, according to Lisa Peterson who is the Nutrition Educator at the University of Illinois Extension Office.
If you need to thaw your turkey in a hurry, you can also thaw it in cold water in your sink, according to Peterson.
You can check out go.illinois.edu/turkey for some turkey tips from the University of Illinois Extension Office. One of the most important tips that Peterson has is to make sure that you cook the entire turkey to 165 degrees.
Another tip that Peterson has is to not cook your turkey below 325 degrees.
