Four Tips for Thawing a Frozen Turkey

  1. Always thaw in the refrigerator -- never at room temperature.
  2. How long something takes to thaw depends on its size and density. A 20-pound turkey may take three days.
  3. If you wake up on the morning of your big meal and the turkey is still slightly frozen, put it in a leak-proof plastic bag in the sink and immerse it in cold water. Change the water every half hour, turning the bag occasionally.
  4. Cook the turkey immediately after thawing.
