When it comes to Thanksgiving leftovers follow these tips for storing your food.
- Turkey and Ham: Can be frozen up to 3 months or refrigerated for 3-4 days.
- Mash Potatoes and Yams: Can be frozen for up to a year.
- Gravy: Flour based gravy can be frozen for up to 4 months. Do not freeze milk based gravy, refrigerate for 1-2 days.
- Pies: Do not freeze pies with custard, cream, or mousse. Refrigerate pumpkin, pecan, or pies with egg filling up to 4 days.
Portion your leftovers out because you should only defrost your food once. If anything was pre-made for your Thanksgiving table, you should gobble it up that night.
