Gobble, Gobbrrrrr

Maybe this goes without saying, but: don’t cook a turkey frozen since the 80s. An admirably waste-averse New Yorker wrote in to The Times Dining staff asking whether he could serve a Butterball abandoned in his relative’s freezer since the Reagan era.

And he wasn’t even kidding.

As we learn, the turkey experts at Butterball suggest two years as the max freezer shelf life for its turkeys (foods dehydrate over time in the freezer). And–I’m guessing here–The Times suggests not using a frozen turkey.
