How to Make Granny B's Thanksgiving Turkey Gravy


  • 1Put giblets and neck in large stock pot filled 3/4 the way full (one gallonish) and cook down for 1 1/2 hours just under boiling.
  • 2Remove neck and giblets from broth. Set aside one cup liquid to cool for slurry. (Now is when I also take out 1 to 2 cups to use as my broth for stuffing)
  • 3After turkey has cooked add drippings to broth. Mix flour and cooled reserve broth in shaker or whisk until smooth. (If the broth is not cooled and you are using a gravy shaker the mixture will expand and possibly explode)
  • 4Add slurry to broth and cook until desired thickness. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can add more flour to thicken if necessary. Serve over turkey and potatoes!
