This is a very simple recipe, but for some reason I have always had difficulty making a tasty gravy. I have finally perfected mom’s turkey gravy and it sure does dress up a turkey dinner.
- Giblets from turkey
- Bay leaf
Take the giblets from the turkey and place in a pan of cold water. Add bay leaf and a few dashes of salt and pepper. Simmer while turkey is cooking to make stock. Add water if necessary just keep the heat low.
When turkey is done, remove from roasting pan and use drippings for gravy. Place roasting pan on stove and shake some flour and water in a small container. Add flour mixture with turkey stock to drippings and simmer until gravy is the appropriate thickness for you. Keep adding flour mixture and stock until flavor is good. Season with salt and pepper.
