Thanksgiving 2008: It’s Time to Use It or Lose It

Heather says:

It is time to use ’em or lose ’em. Here are some guidelines, and recipes for using up Thanksgiving leftovers. Substitute turkey in any of the chicken recipes below.

  • Turkey should be frozen or used within 2 – 6 days.
  • Frozen cooked turkey should be used within 2 months and should be cooked thoroughly, immediately after thawing.
  • If you have gravy, leftover mashed potatoes, or stuffing they should have been used within 1 – 2 days after Thanksgiving. Toss them out.
  • Cranberry sauce can be stirred into yogurt, served over ice cream, or it makes a nice accompaniment to pork chops, ham, chicken, or fish. It should be used within 7 days. (The sugar acts as a preservative.)
