If you were a first-time turkey cook yesterday, you got past the hard part.

But you also need to be safe about keeping leftovers.

Turkey doesn't stay good in the fridge for very long after you cook it.

Food experts recommend three to four days.

But, in the freezer it can last two to three months.

Just make sure the turkey has been carved off the bone first.

But if your turkey was maybe out for too long yesterday and you notice a slimy film or strong odor toss it.
