How Long Can I Keep a Turkey in the Freezer?

Question:

I have a concern. We have had a turkey frozen in the freezer since last Thanksgiving. Is it OK to thaw out, roast and cook?

Answer:

As long as you have kept your freezer cold, you should have no problem using it after a year. Anything beyond one year might be a disappointment in terms of taste. So if anyone has been storing a turkey, now’s the time to use it!
