I've got a riddle that needs solving! Here goes:
We ended up with two turkeys on Thanksgiving (long story.), and popped one into our standup freezer while it was still semi-frozen (this part I'm pretty sure is "safe"). Now....to defrost the thing, Martha says to put it in the refrigerator until defrosted--approximately 5 hours per pound. I've got a 30 pound turkey (yeah, I know), which would be 150 hours...or 6 days! But then, that doesn't seem safe, now does it? That some parts of it will be defrosted for 6 whole days before cooking? This site I found says that an uncooked turkey should not be kept in the refrigerator for more than 4 days.
So, what to do? Does this even make sense to anyone? Welcoming all varieties of advice--I'll go with the consensus. ;)
