I know that this in not period but I need some advice on how to make a
couple of gallons of gravy. I am do a dinner for around fifty or so folks
of roasted turkey with new potatoes, pumpkin pie, garlic butter , steamed
veggies and gravy. I want to make a couple of gallons and I have not done
that quantity before. I will have the pan drippings from the turkey but I
don't think that they will be enough to flavor a couple of gallons of gravy.
Any help out there? Dan in Auburn > > > > > > > >>
Simmer the giblets (not livers; add wing tips if available) in a couple
quarts of water for about 30 minutes and add water back to half gallon.
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 of them
for your gravy (sauce veloute). We can get necks most any time of year
