    Buster's friend's Note:

    The crowning touch for creamy Thanksgiving mashed taters & crispy-edged dressing! Long simmer until the neck & hock fall apart helps perfume the air as the turkey cooks. Getting the extra gizzards used to be a trip to the local supermarket - upon returning to NC I've learned to go to Whole Foods where many folks eschew the giblets when picking up their "free range" turkeys. I get them cheap & freeze extra for deeper in the winter pates & gravies! *Start this the night before Thanksgiving so the giblets can cool before making gravy - goal is to complete gravy while bird is resting before being carved***

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Stud the UNPEELED onions with cloves.
    2. 2
      Rinse giblets & put in crockpot with ham hock, onions, carrot, celery, nutmeg, salt & water.
    3. 3
      Cook overnight (10hours) on low.
    4. 4
      Once cool, pick the tender but stringy meat from the neckbones & ham hock. Finely chop the livers, heart & gizzards. SAVE THE COOKING BROTH! Discard vegies, they are done.
    5. 5
      Combine the neck meat, ham hock meat & chopped gizzards. Refrigerate.
    6. 6
      In a separate container refrigerate broth until ready to complete the gravy.
    7. 7
      Don't worry if broth has jellied in the fridge, simply scoop out 1/2 cup increments to make gravy.
    8. 8
      Once turkey is done & pulled from oven, pull 1/2 cup turkey grease from pan (I use a fat separator to get turkey grease & pan juices) & put in large skillet.
    9. 9
      On medium heat, add 1/2 cup of flour & stir constantly until a nice peanut buttery brown roux develops. Don't walk away & burn it because this will make a bitter gravy.
    10. 10
      Add broth - initally 2 cups, preferably separated drippings from roasting pan, then 1/2 cup of broth at a time & simmer over medium heat until thickend to desired consistency.
    11. 11
      Add giblets & heat through.
    12. 12
      Season to taste with coarse ground black pepper & additional salt if desired. Place in warmed gravy boat & serve steaming hot alongside turkey, taters & stuffing. Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!
