I get so much help from this board!!! thanks for the reminder - I just took the cornish hens out of the freezer!!!
BTW - I've also [as has mom] left the turkey completely covered in water out of the fridge overnight...no problems...it probably helps that I like to keep the house temp at about 60 overnight so there's no heat blowing over it! I don't know if you'd already done this - but is it out of the wrapper so that water can run thru the middle - that would probably thaw it quicker then you'd be able to stick it back in the fridge overnight. Anyway - good luck...it'll all come out tasting great tomorrow!

guess what's in my backyard in a heavy plastic bucket with a lid? In cold water, over night? yep, the 17 pound lugnut. I put it out there yesterday around 4:30 pm. Being that it's cold these days around here, and it snowed I think 3 or 4 days ago, I felt it safe to thaw that way. Heck, betcha $$2@@ (that's dollars to doughnuts) it's still frozen. I've thawed it in cold water in the kitchen sink, overnight, in years past too. I was actually trying to brine it and didn't know :? (and you think you're forgetful?) that you have to brine a 'thawed' bird. Who knew? Not me until I went online to look up brining yesterday.

I am curious to know if there are any other tried and true ways of assuring you have a moist bird and not turkey jerky?[/img]

Its nice to know I'm not alone . Well the cold water in the sink did the trick and the bird thawed out and the water stayed nice and cold so I don't think there will be any problem.

My 2nd to the oldest brother, his girlfriend, and his kids got in town today and we were able to tackle the pies (3 Chocolate, 2 Pumpkin and 1 Apple), Homemade Chicken Noodles, Deviled Eggs, Cheese Ball, and we went ahead and cut up the potatoes and put them in cold water so their ready for cooking tomorrow. It was a wonderful night and such fun to share the kitchen with them. I'm truely blessed to have them in my life.

Se non supporta il calore, vattene dalla cucina!
