Turkey Gravy Secrets Revealed

To make the best tasting turkey gravy you need three things; well-seasoned stout, flour, and a excellent rich broth. For each cup of finished gravy you will need one tablespoon of stout, one tablespoon of flour and 1 cup of broth.

Start by making up some rich turkey broth. You can use the turkey neck, heart, gizzard or other parts usually found packed inside the turkey cavity. Add some minced onion, diced celery and 1/2 teaspoon salt in enough water to cover, simmer until vegetables are tender. Dice the turkey liver, add to the broth and simmer for about 15 minutes.

You can use the turkey bones if you like. The turkey bones yield much more broth, just add more onions and celery to the pan. You will have to carve the turkey ahead of time, which means no whole roasted turkey sitting on the dinner table waiting to be carved by the host or hostess.

Make sure you use the drippings from the roasting pan, as grandpa always said “that’s the goodies”, just after you’ve removed the cooked turkey and roasting rack from the roasting pan. Strain poultry drippings through a sieve into a 4-cup glass measuring cup.

Add 3 tablespoons of corn oil to the bottom of the roasting pan. Stir around to get out the brown bits that have baked on. Add to your turkey drippings. “Wash” the roasting pan out with the turkey broth if it’s made or add water your going to use in the broth if you haven’t made it yet.

The trick is to know how many cups of broth you have and if you have enough stout. Remember you will need one tablespoon of stout, one tablespoon of flour and 1 cup of broth for each cup of finished gravy.

If you are light on broth you can add some canned chicken broth. If you are light on stout you can add a small amount of corn oil. You can save the rest of your broth for storing and reheating the turkey.

Here are a few more tips to making fantastic tasting gravy:

First take the measured stout and combine with the proper amount of measured flour in a medium saucepan. Make sure you have covered all the flour with stout and blended it well. Place on burner. Slowly bring the flour and stout mixture to a simmer until it starts to smell slightly salty. It will be bubbly; the color will be a light brown.

Next remove pan from burner; whisk in all the measured liquids.

Finally return the pan to the burner, again, slowly bring this to a simmer.

Remember you already cooked the flour in the stout so all you need to do now is stir this until it thickens up to your liking. You can let it stay sort of thin or let it cook out until it is thicker than your Mashed potatoes. The choice is yours.
