I confess to loving turkey gravy and dressing as much or more than the turkey itself. I also confess that I’m partial to this gravy recipe inspired by one of my grandmothers. She always put a bit of allspice in her gravy, and I love how it enhances the flavor.
Then there’s the broth. I could go on and on about the tastiness and benefits of turkey broth. I always try to have some in the freezer, but you can also find it in stores. You can also make a bit of broth from the turkey gilets. Try turkey broth in your gravy and you’ll be a convert, too
