If you’re cooking for a crowd this Thanksgiving, turkey is likely on the menu. If you buy a frozen bird, make sure you allow enough time for defrosting. A 20-pound turkey can take five or six days to defrost in the fridge. You can speed up the process by defrosting in cold water, but start early.
The Food Safety website has charts for thawing and cooking all sorts of foods.
