Defrosting safely

Unlike our flash freezing, defrosting is best done slowly. Make sure you calculate defrosting times in advance – you don’t want to end up with a frozen main on Christmas Day!

The size of your turkey will determine the length of time it will take to defrost. As a rough guide, you should allow 24 hours for each 2kg of turkey. So that means if you have a 5-6kg turkey, you should allow three full days to defrost in the fridge.

We recommend keeping food in its packaging and defrosting in the fridge.

How to tell it's fully defrosted

Give it a pat: pop your hand into the cavity and touch the inside of the breast-bone. It should feel soft, and not at all frozen.

Give it a wee jiggle: the legs and wings should be fairly loose. If they feel stiff and difficult to move, it needs to be defrosted for longer.

Use a probe: know for sure by inserting a probe thermometer into the thickest part of the leg or breast. If it reads anything below than 1oc, defrost further.
