      The most awesome Turkey Giblet Gravy Recipe. For three of the cups of water in the stock, substitute vegetable stock.

      Turkey Giblet Gravy Recipe. Wonderful flavor. Definitely worth the time and effort! I substituted sea salt measure for measure for the kosher salt. If I substitute next time, I will reduce by half or so. Still delicious. Also substituted cornstarch for the potato starch.

    Alton Brown's Turkey Giblet Gravy - TGiving 2013, used the recipe for Giblet stock (no giblets in our breast, but used the backbone and turkey necks by the lb) to make the broth, then made the Splendid Table quick turkey gravy (I wanted to use a roux). Best broth I've ever made!

    Perfect Roast Turkey. I just prepared this for Thanksgiving (2013). I followed the directions in the video rather than the printed ones; there are a few differences. It resulted in the juiciest turkey I think I've ever had, with lots of flavor. You can really taste the lemon and thyme. Definite winner!
