Remove the giblets and neck from the cavity of the turkey, they should be in a little bag, and rinse them out.
Melt the butter in a stock pot and add the giblets and neck. Brown on all sides for a few minutes.
Add the chopped celery, carrot, onion, garlic and the water. Put on medium-low heat and simmer for 60 minutes, or until you have exactly 3 cups (25 fl oz) of broth left. Turn off the heat.
Strain the veggies out and discard. Carefully remove the neck and giblets out. You should have 3 cups (25 fl oz) of broth in the stock pot.
Let the neck cool down completely before doing this step or you'll burn your fingers. Peel the meat out of the neck as much as you can. Once you've peeled all of the neck, add it to a food processor along with the giblets.
Pulse until you get a thick paste.
In the stock pot, add the 2 cups (17 fl oz) of roast drippings. A 14lb/6.57kg turkey gave me 2 cups (17 fl oz) of drippings. Add the giblet and neck paste into the pot, turn on the heat on high and start stirring.
Add the cream and continue to stir.
Add 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum at a time while whisking. Continue to add the xanthan gum until desired thickness. I needed 1.5 tsp total, but you may need less or more depending on how thick you like your gravy.
Once the desired thickness is achieved, add the parsley, mix and it's ready to serve!
I calculated the nutritional value as best as I could by adding the meat, cream, butter and xanthan gum to a calculator, but I don't really know how to calculate the nutritional value of homemade broth.For the Roast Turkey recipe, check it out here!If you want a non-dairy recipe that uses starch instead of xanthan gum, then check out my Paleo Turkey Giblet Gravy recipe!
