How to Prep Your Lucky's Market Turkey
Thaw your turkey 1 to 3 days in advance of cooking.
Thaw the turkey in your kitchen sink with cold water in the original packaging.
NEVER let the turkey get warm.
The cold water needs to be changed every 30 minutes.
Thaw the turkey until the bag feels soft. For a fresh turkey that feels hard, thaw between 1 and 4 hours.
After the turkey is thawed, store it in the refrigerator in the original packaging.
I thought my turkey was fresh. Why does it feel frozen?
Fresh turkeys will sometimes feel hard on the outside because they are chilled to degrees for safe shipping. Only the outer part of the turkey should be hard, not the entire turkey.
