Prep Time

20 minutes

Cook Time

30 minutes


2 Quarts


1 quart stock, turkey
1 neck, turkey
1 giblets, turkey
3 ounces butter, unsalted
1⁄2 cup flour (plus 2 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon thyme, fresh
1 tablespoon sage, dried
2 winter savory, fresh
2 rosemary sprig (fresh)
1⁄2 teaspoon pepper, white (ground)


In a stock pot, bring turkey broth, neck and giblets to a boil. Tie the savory and rosemary and add it to the broth. Simmer for 30 minutes. In a medium sauce pan, melt butter. When butter is melted, whisk flour into butter (this is the roux). Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add roux to stock whisking well so there are no lumps. Simmer for at least 10 minutes. Add herbs and season to taste. Also add any drippings from the cooked turkey you may have. Strain before serving.
