Stove Top

Ingredients

1 pkg
neck, heart, gizzard from turkey giblets
1 medium
carrot, thickly sliced
1 medium
onion, thickly sliced
1 medium
celery rib, thickly sliced
1/2 tsp
salt
1
turkey liver
3 Tbsp
fat from poultry drippings
3 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
salt
1 1/2 Tbsp
butter
1/2 lb
button mushrooms (others may be substituted), cleaned and sliced thin
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a 3-quart saucepan, over high heat, place neck, heart, gizzard, vegetables and salt in enough cold water to cover. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 45 minutes.
2
Add liver and cook 15 minutes longer. Strain broth into a large bowl; cover and reserve broth in the refrigerator.
3
To make the gravy, remove the cooked turkey and roasting rack from the roasting pan. Pour poultry drippings through a sieve into a 4-cup measuring cup.
4
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 cup with drippings. Let the mixture stand a few minutes, until the fat rises to the top.
5
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.
6
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.
7
Gradually whisk in warm poultry dripping/broth mixture.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add the mushrooms and saute until the mushrooms are tender and all liquid has evaporated, about 3 to 4 minutes.
8
Stir mushrooms into hot gravy. Season with salt and pepper and cook and stir until gravy simmers and is slightly thick.

Serve hot in a warm gravy boat.
