How long does cooked Turkey stay good in the fridge? When can I freeze it?
I figure about a week, you can freeze it any time. I wouldn't eat it after about four or five days I wouldn't keep it any longer than 3 days. Not very long. I love turkey so leftovers usually don't make past a day or two at my house. Three to four days in the fridge, a couple of months in a freezer. If you vacuum seal it, a year in a freezer.
That being said if you have turkey from Thanksgiving or Christmas in the fridge or freezer , it is probably well past time to throw it out :) Don't go over 3 days. After 3 days, chuck it in the freezer. I usually use the 3 day rule for any cooked meats in the refrigerator If a turkey is cooked well done it can stay for only 24 hours in the frig. you can freeze it right away after cooking but you run the risk of it not having anything in it that is nutritious after cooking it. Cooked turkey won't last longer than 5 days. Freeze it as soon as you can, and don't leave it in the freezer for longer than 6 months. Wrap it in a lot of plastic wrap and put it in a resealable freezer bag to prevent freezer burn, or use a sealer. Freezer burn happens when air gets to your food, causing it to dry out, and then you start to see ice crystals all over it. You can freeze any cooked meat 15 minuts after it has been set out to cool and has done so sufficiently; the exception might be a roasted turkey still in its pan. w
This would take much longer to cool down unless removed from the pan and which because it is a fowl with skin on it will take 30 minutes even set on a rack outside the pan.
After that you can wrap the pieces, enclose them in zipped or closured freezer bags with the air pushed out first, and keep them for 2--4 months under normal condition.
Under nomral circumstances, any cooled piece of meat will keep well on the lower shelves of a refrigerator for four days, and should be eaten on the fourth day. Smell it. Your nose knows about food better than anything. Trust your nose. Cats and many other animals do. That said, at least a week.
