2:15 am
already thanksgiving day, what's the best way to quickly unthaw the turkey so you can cook it? >> yeah. no worries, the quickest way now from this point keep your turkey in the original wrapper and give it a cold water bath. put it in your sink, completely submerge it with cold water from your tap and that's your quickest way. you're going to want to change that water about every 30 minutes or so and that really expedites the thawing. >> i talked to my sister this morning and she went on your hotline, which she said was so helpful and she said she bought her turkey frozen on sunday and she immediately put it in the -- says five days in the refrigerator. >> is it raw? >> she started to feel it yesterday and gave it a bath, did exactly what you said and i'm happy to say that you're right, miss butterball. >> of course she is. here's the other question, a lot of people want to know if you should cover your turkey to make it that golden brown, you know, beautiful bird, or should you put foil or a lid or what should you do? >> reynolds wrap stuff.
2:16 am
>> what helps give it that golden brown color brush it with vegetable oil before you put in the oven, uncovered initially and then about two-thirds of the way through grab some of that reynolds foil and loosely cover the top of the breast. that's to prevent the breast from getting too done while you're waiting for the rest. >> too dried out. we understand you have men there and we understand you are now telling what wines pair nicely. we're so glad you added that this year. thank you for coming. >> thank you, sue. >> bye-bye. >> happy thanksgiving. >> happy thanksgiving. >> do we have time to hear "do re me". >> there's a special on tonight about the making of -- ♪ a female deer >> the making of "the sound of music." who's coming up, john o'hurley? >> he has dogs. >> don't hound him for autographs. the national dog show is coming up. >> right after this. ♪ sew a needle pulling thread [ female announcer ] this is laura.
