Millions of American families will be enjoying their Thanksgiving meal tomorrow with Turkey playing the starring role. To help you prepare your bird, the experts at the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line are ready for your questions. Here's Nutritionist Sue, who has been with Butter Ball for 22 years. "the number 1 problem that we year year after year is, 'I don't know how to thaw my turkey' or 'I may not have my turkey thawed in time.' Sue gives this advice: "Thaw it NOW in cold water. Change that water every 30 minutes. That will be the quickest way to thaw that turkey!"

Since 1981 the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line experts have helped fretful home cooks with Thanksgiving meals. Turkey expert Sue has been on phone duty for decades and says if you follow some basic guidelines it's all pretty simple.

That's what gives it that beautiful golden brown color."

The 50 experts on duty are awaiting your call every day from 6 to 6 (Central Time) including Thanksgiving all the way through to Christmas Eve. Go to KTRH for the phone number, web site address.
