Got turkey trouble? Call OSU Extension hotline

How do you quickly thaw a big turkey? Should you stuff it or not? How do you make turkey giblet gravy like your grandma's?

As Thanksgiving approaches, you can get answers to questions like these by calling the Oregon State University Extension Service's holiday food safety hotline at 1-800-354-7319.

The statewide hotline runs from Nov. 15-16 and 19-21 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. It's staffed by Extension-trained master food preserver volunteers.

The Extension Service has offered the hotline for more than 20 years. Every November, volunteers with the OSU Extension Service in Douglas and Lane counties field an average of 200 calls from throughout the state, said Nellie Oehler, a retired family community health educator with OSU Extension.
