DIRECTIONS

  • In a large saucepan combine 3 cups water, turkey neck (and giblets, if using), celery, carrots, onion, garlic, bay leaves, parsley, thyme and peppercorns. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for an hour (I simmer all day and sporadically add pan drippings).
  • Strain and de-fat the broth.
  • Return broth to pan and heat gently.
  • Defat the dripping and add to the stock. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the flour. Stir well and cook until the roux turns a light brown.
  • Whisk the roux into the stock and cook until the gravy thickens.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve hot.
