Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Heat oil over medium heat and add turkey parts and vegetables to the pan. Cook until turkey parts are browned, turning occasionally about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Slowly add stock and deglaze the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for an hour.
  3. Remove the turkey and vegetables. Strain broth through a cheesecloth into a large liquid measuring cup. Put the measuring cup in the freezer for about 15 minutes to solidify the fat on top.
  4. In the same pan as you simmer the stock, add the drippings from your turkey (if you have some) along with the fat from the top of the broth. Add 3 tablespoons of flour and whisk for about 1 minute. (You may need more flour, depending on the amount of fat from turkey.)
  5. Slowly add the stock, while continually whisking. Once all the stock is added, simmer until thickened.
  6. If the gravy doesn’t thicken, or tastes too greasy, add flour but be sure to temper it with some of your gravy before adding it to the pan to prevent lumping. But if your gravy thickens too much, whisk in some turkey or chicken stock.
