From Gourmet magazine. I use this stock as a base for my Turkey Gravy. I don't use the liver in the stock or gravy. It can lend a bitter note.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil over moderate heat.
  2. Brown neck and giblets 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and simmer about 3 hours. Turkey parts will be very tender.

  5. Stock should measure 4 cups. Add more water or continue to boil if necessary.
  6. Let stand until fat rises to the top and skim fat from top.
  7. Let cool completely before chilling.
  8. Skim fat before using.
