Ingredients

  • 2 pounds turkey wings
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, halved
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 1 head garlic, smashed
  • 1/2 bunch fresh sage
  • 1/2 bunch fresh thyme
  • 8 black peppercorns
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Put the turkey wings* into a small roasting pan and roast them until they are golden brown, about 30 minutes.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrots, garlic, herbs, and peppercorns and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the turkey wings. Pour some water into the roasting pan and scrape up all the browned bits on the bottom; add this to the pot. Cover everything in the pot with cold water by 1-inch and bring to the boil, skimming any foam that rises to the surface.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Strain out the solids and discard. Wipe out the pot and put it over medium heat. Melt the butter with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and add the flour. Cook this roux, stirring frequently, until it is golden brown.
  • Slowly whisk in the strained stock being careful to work out any lumps. Cook until the gravy has thickened, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • *You also add the backbone and neck of the turkey you are grilling.

Notes

I have been desperately seeking NEW Thanksgiving recipes because I am tired of looking into the glazed bored eyes of my family. I guess you CAN get tired of "family favorites".

I found this recipe on TYLER FLORENCES FOOD 911 show website. I think this is a keeper!!
