  • Finely mince heart, liver, and gizzard meat; reserve 1/3 cup minced meat. Remove meat from neck and finely mince. Mash neck meat in a mortar with a pestle.

  • Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute green bell pepper in hot oil until fragrant and slightly softened, about 1 minute. Pour water and broth into saucepan. Immediately whisk cornstarch and flour into broth mixture until smooth.

  • Stir minced meat, mashed neck meat, cubed turkey, milk, vinegar, sugar, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried parsley flakes into broth mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, whisking occasionally, until gravy is thick, 30 to 35 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute low-sodium chicken broth for the turkey broth.

I saved and froze the giblets from the last turkey I made but I did not save the neck so this one was made as written minus the neck. I really liked this and especially enjoyed the tang from the vinegar. It was a little runny but that is an easy fix. This one is a keeper and I will be sure to save the neck on my next turkey so that I can make this again. Read More
