    Serves: 3 

    • 1 neck, giblets and liver from a turkey
    • 6 cups water
    • 1 celery stick, sliced
    • 1 carrot, sliced
    • 1 onion, quartered
    • zest from 2 tangerines
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr40min  ›  Ready in:1hr55min 

    1. In a large saucepan, combine the neck and giblets (excluding the liver), water, celery, carrot, onion, tangerine zest, bay leaf and peppercorns. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and continue to cook at a simmer for 1 hour, occasionally skimming off the froth. Add liver and continue to cook at a bare simmer for another 30 minutes.
    2. Strain the stock through a fine sieve into a bowl. Reserve the liver for Awesome Sausage, Apple & Dried Cranberry Stuffing. Reserve the neck and remaining giblets for the gravy. There should be about 3 cups of stock. If there is more, simmer the stock until it is reduced to about 3 cups; if there is less, add enough water to make up to 3 cups.

    I needed to make a stock in order to get gravy for my deep-fried turkey. This was so easy to make - made the whole house smell wonderful - and also made a tasty gravy.  -  27 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
