  • 2 cup(s) dry white wine
  • 6 sprig(s) fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup(s) all purpose flour

  1. 1. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Place turkey trimmings, carrot, celery, onions and garlic in large flame proof roasting pan. Spray lightly with cooking spray and toss to combine. Roast, stirring every 10 minutes, until well browned, 40 - 50 minutes.

  3. 3. Transfer contents of roasting pan to large saucepan. Add wine, 3 cups of water, and thyme; bring to a boil over high eat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until reduced by half, about 1 1/2 hours. Strain stock into large measuring cup. Cool to room temperature.; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until fat congeals, at least 1 hour.

  4. 4. To finish gravy, skim fat from stock using a soup spoon, reserve fat. Pour stock through fine mesh strainer to remove remaining bits of fat; discard bits in strainer. Bring stock to simmer in medium sauce pan over medium high heat. In second medium sauce pan, heat 4 tablespoons reserved turkey fat over medium high heat until bubbling; whack in flour and cook, whisking constantly, until combined and honey colored, about 2 minutes. Continue to whisk constantly, gradually add hot stock; bring to boil, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve with turkey. (can be refrigerated up to 3 days; reheat in medium saucepan over medium heat until hot, about 8 minutes.)
