I have my turkey in the oven and I was wondering, does anyone else put the neck and giblets from the turkey in a saucepan to simmer on top of the stove? My mother always did this to add colour and extra flavor to the gravy. I have always followed her example and it works well.
About an hour before the main course my Dad would always sit down and eat the turkey neck because he couldn't wait any longer. My mom would get exasperated but wonderful memories now that he is gone.
