Price reductions on holiday foods in good supply can mean savings for consumers, said Karen Blakeslee, Kansas State University Research and Extension food scientist. "Check grocery inserts in local papers to compare prices.

"If, for example, freezer space is available, take advantage of sale prices on a frozen turkey or turkey breast," she said.

The taste of fresh and frozen turkeys is comparable, Blakeslee said.

To choose a bone-in turkey, allow one pound of turkey per person. If additional white meat is preferred, consider buying an extra turkey breast.
