Frozen vs. Fresh – The Thanksgiving turkey debate

FROZEN VS. REFRIGERATED VS. FRESH
While most would never be able to tell the difference, there are some key variances in the prep work related to either a frozen or refrigerated turkey. Namely, the time.

Frozen turkeys must be thawed before they can be baked, usually over a few days. Meaning you must not only have room in your freezer to store it, but you must allow proper time before you plan to cook it. The pro to a frozen turkey is that you may purchase it farther in advance than a refrigerated one, even a year in advance! This allows you to purchase it when it’s on sale or when it’s convenient for you.

Refrigerated turkeys, on the other hand, have been given the thumbs up for being slightly more tender and juicy than frozen turkeys. These are best if you plan to use your turkey right away or in a day or two. Which means no purchasing weeks in advance and still using a refrigerated turkey. Take note of the “use by” date printed on the weight tag or sticker. Have no fear. If something comes up and you’re unable to cook the turkey as planned, simply freeze it and save it for when you’re ready.
