Use Pewter to Defrost Meats

Any type of solid pewter platter or tray can be used to quickly thaw even the thickest cut of meat, including roasts and Boston butts. Just set the meat on the platter and let it do all the work. Most meats are relatively thawed within 1 - 2 hours.

Thanks for this excellent tip. I have seen those defrosting platters on the infomercials. They cost a fortune, this one wont. I have a pewter platter in my cupboard...woo hoo! Thanks again and Good Luck

If you place raw meat directly on the metal, make sure the pewter is safe for coming into direct contact with food. I think some of the older pewter may not be.
