Update on gallons of gravy. I was able to get some pan drippings from the
meat that I roasted. I found a product called Roasted Chicken Base . It
is basically pureed chicken , broth and some thickeners along with some
multi sulabacatical (SP) words but it turned out good.

niccolo difrancesco replied to Dan's questions about making a large
amount of gravy with:
<<< Simmer the giblets (not livers; add wing tips if available) in a
quarts of water for about 30 minutes and add water back to half
Why do you exclude the livers? Do they add too strong a taste?
<<< Then, you can use a turkey base (high end boullion) or chicken
broth in a
pinch, . . . or buy some turkey necks/backs to make a good broth out
for your gravy (sauce veloute). We can get necks most any time of year
around here. >>>
Interesting idea about buying the necks for this. It sounds like you
are making the broth/turkey base seperately and then adding that to
the liquid above. Why is this? Why not add the turkey parts directly
to the water above?
You don't say anything about adding flour or some other thickener.
You do need to add that, otherwise you just get broth or consume
(thick broth), correct?
(Obviously not too experienced at making gravy :-) )
