I adored this thread!

thanks otter and audeo for this informative entertaining thread - I loved every post! Better than any cooking show on TV IMHO.

I have one request to you intrepid testers if there's any of that turkey left - would you try freezing some of the meat and then report back if, when thawed, it is still moist? (Or maybe someone knows the answer to that already?)

Otter,

Schnitzel and Brewster get the cooked giblets but the broth is MINE!


Regarding freezing (this is not an answer to the frozen cooked turkey question, however) I have taken to making up a brine and then freezing uncooked chicken in it so that it brines as it thaws. It works pretty well, but not as well as brining fresh poultry.

subfuscpersona, I didn't freeze any, but the leftovers have been great every day. jennyema, Bridget demands hers be baked in the oven with the turkey, so there is no broth.

It's a good thing I am at work where Schnitzel can't read the screen .....

A package of chix wings plus aromatics makes a fine broth, too ...

Frozen brined turkey retains its moisture very well...there's nothing that will pull the moisture out, once you've got it in...it just takes that bit longer to freeze and thaw...
