Rich Pan Gravy

  • SERVINGS: MAKES ABOUT 1 QUART
  • MAKE-AHEAD

This delicious turkey gravy is made with slowly simmered turkey pieces, turkey pan juices, onion and dry white wine.

  1. 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  2. Reserved turkey neck, wing tips and giblets, cut into 1-inch pieces
  3. 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  4. 4 1/2 cups water
  5. Reserved pan juices from Perfect Roast Turkey
  6. 1 cup dry white wine
  7. 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  8. Freshly ground pepper
  1. Heat the oil in an enameled cast-iron casserole. Add the turkey parts and onion and cook over moderately high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Cover and cook over low heat until the turkey parts release their liquid, about 20 minutes. Add 4 cups of the water and bring to a boil. Cover partially and simmer over low heat until the broth is reduced to 3 cups, about 1 hour. Strain the broth into a medium saucepan and skim off the fat.
  2. Pour the reserved turkey pan juices into a glass measuring cup and skim off the fat. Set the roasting pan over 2 burners on moderately high heat. Add the wine and boil for 2 minutes, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Scrape the contents of the pan into a strainer set over the turkey broth and press on the vegetables. Bring the broth to a boil. Mix the cornstarch with the remaining 1/2 cup of water until smooth, then whisk this slurry into the boiling broth. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until lightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Season with pepper, pour into a gravy boat and serve.
Make Ahead The gravy can be prepared through Step 1 and refrigerated for up to 3 days.
