I have been making this delicious gravy since I discovered it by chance in 2000. I double Martha's giblet stock recipe (I buy an extra tray of turkey necks) to make more gravy. This recipe truly is the perfect turkey gravy.
To queenvwest: Sorry to hear of your accident. I use to cover mine with a towel ... but to be REALLY safe - I now use an immersion blender. Put everything in a bowl (or that silly jar) & let that wonderful gadget do all the work! It's Fabulous!!! (and they're no longer as expensive as they once were. SO many uses! WELL worth the investment) Happy Turkey Day! : -)
Be careful with this recipe. Apparently, my stock was a little too warm. when I was making the slurry, as I was shaking the jar, it exploded in my hand. I was cut in several places. I was thankful that none of my guests, including my 15 month old grandson, was injured by the cut glass. I recommend substituting a plastic container for the glass jar.
This is a wonderful gravy recipe that I make every year. It comes out perfect every time!
