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 turkey drippings
3 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
salt
pepper to taste

Step-By-Step

1In a 3-quart saucepan, over high heat, place neck, heart, gizzard, vegetables and 1/2 teaspoon salt in enough cold water to cover. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 45 minutes.
2Add liver and simmer 15 minutes longer. Strain broth into a large bowl; cover and reserve broth in the refrigerator.
3To make gravy, remove cooked turkey and roasting rack from the roasting pan. Strain poultry drippings through a sieve into a 4-cup measuring cup.
4Add 1 cup giblet broth to the roasting pan and stir until the crusty brown bits are loosened; pour the deglazed liquid/broth into cup with drippings. Let the mixture stand a few minutes, until the fat rises to the top.
5Over medium heat, spoon 3 Tablespoons fat from the poultry drippings into a 2-quart saucepan. Whisk flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt into the heated fat and continue to cook and stir until the flour turns golden.
6Meanwhile, skim and discard any fat remaining on top of the poultry drippings. Add remaining broth and enough water to the poultry drippings to equal 3-1/2 cups.
7Gradually whisk in warm poultry drippings/broth mixture. Cook and stir, until gravy simmers and is slighty thick. Season to taste.
