Take a ride on the gravy train. Polish off the perfect turkey dinner with this great-tasting turkey gravy that's downright delicious.

Turkey giblets, and neck bone
2 cups chicken broth
2 medium carrots, finely chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
2 large shallots, finely chopped
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 cups cold water
1/4 cup turkey drippings
2 tsp. chicken bouillon granules

Place the giblets, neck bone, broth, carrots, celery & shallots in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1-1/4 hours.
Strain and discard giblets, neck bone and vegetables; set cooking juices aside. In another large saucepan, combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir in the drippings and bouillon until smooth. Gradually stir in the reserved cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Season with pepper.

Thanks for the recipe. I'll have to try this one. I stink at making gravy! I finally gave up and started buying the canned stuff!
