Can I cook a year old turkey?
If you have an aged turkey that's been chilling in the back of the freezer for ohhhh, say a year now - it's ok, go ahead and cook the bird. In fact, according to ochef.com you can cook a turkey that's been lost in your freezer for up to four years. I wouldn't recommend dusting one off that's quite so old, but it's good news if that's all you're working with this year.
Our turkey was forgotten in the back of the freezer for just over a year now...but in our deffense it wasn't our fault. Corporate must have scored a great deal on mark down turkeys last year because hubby's job gave him one after Thanksgiving...there's top level planning for yuh. We were grateful for the free bird but had little use for it after the big day, and we are not one to waste a poor soul that has passed away for our simple meat-eating enjoyment - so hold on to it we did.
