1 Package Neck, heart, gizzard from turkey giblets

1 Medium carrot thickly sliced

1 Medium onion thickly sliced

1 Medium celery rib thickly sliced

1/2 Teaspoon salt

1 turkey liver

3 Tablespoons fat from poultry drippings

3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 Teaspoon salt


In a 3-quart saucepan, over high heat, place neck, heart, gizzard,

vegetables, and salt in enough water to cover. Heat to boiling. Reduce

heat to low; cover and simmer 45 minutes. Add liver and cook 15 minutes

longer. Strain both into a large bowl; cover and reserve broth in the



To make gravy, remove the cooked turkey and roasting rack

from the roasting pan. Pour poultry drippings through a sieve into a 4-cup

measuring cup. Add 1 cup giblet broth to the roasting pan and stir until

the crusty brown bits are loosened; pour the deglazed liquid/broth into the

4-cup measure. Let the mixture stand a few minutes, until the fat rises to

the top. Over medium heat, spoon 3 tablespoons fat from the poultry

drippings into a 2-quart saucepan. Whisk flour and salt into the heated fat

and continue to cook and stir until the flour turns golden.


Meanwhile, skim and discard any fat that remains on top of the poultry

drippings. Add remaining broth and enough water to the poultry drippings

to equal 3-1/2 cups. Gradually whisk in warm poultry drippings/broth

mixture. Cook and stir, until gravy boils and is slighty thick.
