  • Large Pot


  • Giblets (from Turkey or Chicken)
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • ½ cup stalks Celery (diced)
  • 1 cup Onion (diced)
  • ½ cup Carrots (diced)
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic (minced)
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 5 cups Water
  • 1 teaspoon Salt 
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper 
  • 2 tablespoons All-Purpose Flour 
  • Drippings from Roasted Turkey (as required)


  • In a pot, melt butter and add the giblets to it. Cook them until they are brown.
  • Then, add the onions, celery, and carrots to it. Saute them for about 3-4 minutes until the onions become translucent. After that, add the garlic and saute for another minute.
  • Add bay leaf, thyme and water to the pot. Bring it to a boil and then, lower the heat. Cover the pot with a lid and cook on low heat for about 2 hours.
  • Then, drain the giblets through a sieve and save half a cup of the stock. Mince the giblets.
  • When your chicken or turkey is roasted, transfer its drippings to a pan.
  • Add flour to it and cook until it becomes thick. Then, add the stock and the inced giblets to it. Stir it until it becomes thick.
  • Season it with salt and pepper. If you want a smoother gravy, you can blend it. Otherwise, if you like chunky gravy, then your gravy is ready!
