Serves 4| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:
- giblets (neck, liver, heart, etc.) from the turkey
- 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
- 2 stalks celery, cut into 2-inch pieces
- 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
- 4 fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs
- roasting pan and its contents, from the Garlic Butter Turkey
- 1/2 cup dry vermouth
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- kosher salt and black pepper
- Make the giblet stock: Combine the giblets, carrots, celery, onion, parsley, and 8 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half and the neck meat is very tender, 1 to 1½ hours.
- Remove the giblets. Pull the meat off the neck and finely chop the remaining giblets; reserve. Strain the stock into a large measuring cup or bowl; you should have about 3 cups (add water if necessary).
- Place the reserved roasting pan with the vegetables across 2 burners and cook over medium-high heat, scraping up the bits stuck to the pan, until the vegetables darken, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the vermouth and cook until syrupy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Whisk in the stock and cook until thickened, 4 to 6 minutes.
- Strain the gravy into a small saucepan. Add the reserved neck meat, chopped giblets, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.
