Why We Deliver Turkeys The Week Before(by November 19th)

Brad McNamaraNov 13, '21

Believe it or not, cooking a turkey is not that difficult. Which turkey cooking method chosen is up to the cook, just make sure it is a safe method. There are a few steps to consider before you even start to cook the bird.

Our turkeys are flash frozen and should be properly thawed before cooking. The safest way to thaw the bird in the refrigerator for ~3 days. Some say you can cut that time by thawing at room temperature but we strongly advise against this idea. Uncooked poultry for extended time at room temperature is a food safety no no.  

Do not wash the turkey (Wash Hands: Not the Turkey). Wash hands, utensils, sink and anything else that has come in contact with the raw turkey with hot, soapy water immediately following preparation. 

 

Our produce & fruit THANKSGIVING BOXES are relatively hearty items that are packed with care and will be delicious for you meal Thanksgiving. We wouldn’t be comfortable delivering the products to you in advance if we’re weren’t confident in this fact.
