    turkey best before dates

    Not sure when to do a xmas food shop. Need to get a turkey and a gammon.
    Anyone already bought there's? Interested to know what the bb dates are like or if it's worth leaving until Friday?

    Have you ever cooked anything before and i mean anything X)

    turkey is probably mass slaughtered so all stock may be same date, just past christmas
    hams have a longer life anyway so whenever

    Maybe safer getting a Chinese delivered. X)
