    PanNan's Note:

    This recipe makes a wonderful turkey gravy. I discoverd it one year when we were grilling the turkey, but I still wanted the traditional roasted turkey gravy. It also makes a delicious soup. This recipe reminds us of Thanksgiving, the first of which was celebrated in New England.

      Easy great recipe. I made this when I was roasting a smaller than usual turkey breast and I was afraid I wouldn't have enough gravy. The turkey wings are very cheap to buy and this probably makes a lot healthier a choice than the prepared gravy in a can. I wanted to try my new rotisserie with a turkey and I now have the means of having lots of flavorful gravy to go with it. Many thanks PanNan.

      Nice, richly brown gravy to go with our Thanksgiving turkey, which was brined and therefore didn't want to use the pan drippings. The only thing that kept this from being a 5-star was that I thought the flavor of the vegetables overpowered the turkey flavor. Next time I will use less celery, as that is the flavor that dominated.
