How To Tell If Turkey Is Good

Say you have some turkey in the fridge and you’re hoping to freeze it to make it last as long as possible. Before you do anything else, it’s important to try to figure out if the turkey is good to begin with.

陌陌飞艇多少币The best way to tell if turkey is still good is smell and texture. As StillTasty.com points out, if the and/or a slimy texture, it’s probably not good anymore — no matter what the date on the package says. So if you give your turkey a sniff and things seem a little off, then now’s the time to toss it and choose something else to cook for dinner or freeze.

How To Properly Store Turkey In The Freezer

As another Woman’s Day article points out, all meat is good in the freezer indefinitely, but only if it is stored at 0°F consistently.

陌陌飞艇多少币“This rule applies for meat stored at exactly 0°F without fluctuation, and it must be uniformly frozen at that temperature to keep harmful bacteria away,” Christina Oehler writes in the Woman’s Day piece. “The process of thawing and refreezing can disrupt the bacteria and mold that naturally grow in aging food, allowing them to multiply when the temperature rises enough.”

陌陌飞艇多少币With that being said, if your turkey is good when you freeze it (and you properly thaw it — more on that below) then you should be able to eat it at any point after freezing it, whether that’s in two months or two years. Just remember to keep that temperature at 0 degrees and you’re good to go.

If you’re storing cooked turkey (as opposed to raw), it should for up to two or three months, according to the Globe and Mail.

How To Properly Defrost Turkey

陌陌飞艇多少币According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), there are a few (or any meat) safely. What you choose to do will probably depend on what appliances and how much time you have available to you. The first is refrigerator defrosting. Simply put the meat in the refrigerator and let it thaw down slowly. Keep in mind, though, that the key word here is slowly. Even ground turkey will take 24 hours to fully thaw, according to the USDA. The bigger the piece of meat is, the longer this will take.

陌陌飞艇多少币The second, more attentive method is cold water thawing. As the USDA explains, your meat must be in a leakproof package or plastic bag, which you will submerge in cold tap water, changing the water every 30 minutes so it continues to thaw. Like fridge thawing, this will take time. USDA notes you should “estimate about 30 minutes per pound.”

The third method is to defrost the meat in the microwave, which is the quickest option. Like the cold water method, the FDA instructs to cook the food immediately after thawing it.
