Here are the steps to Gravy Heaven:

  • First, saute the Neck and Giblets in a sauce pan with the melted butter. Add the carrots, garlic, onion, shallot and celery. Stir for 5-10 minutes until well coated and the Neck and Giblets start to brown a little, but make sure they do not burn.
  • Add the broth and bring to a boil, then add the Turkey pan juices and water. Simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Remove neck and pick off any loose meat. Discard the neck and add the meat back to the sauce pan.
  • Blend all the ingredients with the emulsion blender for a few minutes making sure all chunks are blended. Strain very well making sure to get as much of the juices as possible. Return the strained liquid to the sauce pan.
