Ingredients

  • 2 yellow onions , cut into wedges
  • 2 carrots , cut into 2″ chunks
  • 2 ribs celery , cut into 2″ chunks
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 turkey wings
  • 8 cups water
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Toss turkey, onion, carrot and celery in oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Roast in a baking dish or baking sheet for 1 hour.

  4. Add turkey and vegetables and drippings to a large pot with the 8 cups of water.
  5. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 2 hours.

  6. If liquid is evaporating, add more water to keep level of liquid above the turkey and vegetables (roughly, about 1/3 of it should evaporate leaving about 6 cups of gravy).
  7. Strain the gravy using a large strainer (fine mesh is best) then put the gravy back into the pot.
  8. Turn on medium heat and bring to a simmer.
  9. Mash together the butter and flour and whisk it into the gravy.
  10. Cook for 6-8 minutes until gravy is smooth and thickened.

  11. Check at last minute before serving for seasonings (if you need more salt or pepper this would be where to add it).
