Merry Christmas…

I’m in the final stages of prepping for the big day with my turkey crown defrosting the fridge.  It’s been there since last night and still solid as a rock!  Someone please let me know that it will be thawed by tomorrow morning!? I haven’t done turkey and all the trimmings for a number of years so I’m panicking slightly :o) 

Everything else is ready…the mince pies are made and the Christmas pud is ready too.  The gifts are wrapped and all ready to go under the tree. So I guess all that is left to do is wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season.  May your days be merry and bright and filled with laughter and cheer!

Until next time...♥

Have a wonderful day - it will all be perfect, of course.

Frozen turkeys take a long time to thaw out. Put it in a sink of cool water. Turn it over and replace the water every so often. Happy Holidays!

I always leave mine out in the kitchen overnight - I don't have heating in there so I feel safe that I won't be giving anyone food poisoning and have never done so before!!

I leave mine out in the kitchen overnight too! No heating on, and the bucket of water trick works too! If you can do that and cover it, put it outside will work to. Have a very merry Christmas! x

No matter how long I leave it in the fridge it always is still a bit frozen when I unwrap it. I fill the sink with cool water and put the turkey in the water. Change the water about every 30 minutes. When you take the turkey out of the water make sure to dry it thoroughly before putting it in the over. Good luck!

Cold water in the sink and change every 30 minutes. That should do the trick! Merry Christmas.
