Thanksgiving Turkey & Gravy  

Turkey:
Total Time: 2 ½ hours 
Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 12-pound turkey
  • ½ stick softened butter
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ lemon
  • 1 sprig sage


Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
Remove bag of giblets and neck from inside a fresh 12-pound turkey and reserve for gravy. 
Lightly butter a heavy roasting pan. 
Rinse and dry turkey. 
Rub outside with ½ stick softened butter, 
Maldon sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. 
Rub ½ lemon inside cavity. 
Leave lemon, along with 1 sprig sage and a big knob of butter, inside cavity.
Place turkey in greased roasting pan and cook, basting turkey with drippings every 10 minutes and rotating pan 90 degrees every half hour, until a meat thermometer inserted into the fattest part of the thigh (avoiding bone) registers 165 degrees, about 1¼ hours. (Begin checking temperature after 45 minutes of cooking.) 
Remove turkey from oven and let rest in a warm area 1 hour. 
Remove turkey from pan and set on a serving platter, reserving juices in pan for gravy. 
Carve and serve.

Gravy:

Start the stock for this recipe Thanksgiving morning and let it simmer away while you prepare the other dishes.

Total Time: 4½ hours (includes making stock) 

Ingredients:

  • Turkey giblets and neck
  • 2 peeled onions
  • 4 peeled carrots
  • 1 head garlic
  • 6 quarts water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups red wine
  • 2 cups turkey stock



Directions:
Roast turkey giblets and neck in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. 
Combine roasted giblets and neck, 2 peeled onions, 4 peeled carrots and 1 head garlic, halved crosswise, in an 8-quart stockpot. 
Fill with 6 quarts water and bring to a boil. Add 2 bay leaves. 
Skim any foam from surface, then reduce heat to low so liquid is slowly simmering. 
Cook until flavorful, at least 2 hours.
Strain stock, discarding solids. 
Transfer liquid to a medium pot over medium heat. 
Simmer until reduced to 2 cups, about 1 hour.
Once turkey is cooked and removed from pan, bring 2 cups red wine along with reserved pan juices to a simmer in turkey roasting pan over medium heat. 
Let wine simmer, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan, until liquid is syrupy, 10 minutes. 
Stir in 2 cups turkey stock, then strain liquid into a saucepan over medium heat. Cook gravy until slightly thickened, 10-15 minutes. 
Whisk in ½ stick butter and serve.

  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, for serving

    Directions:

    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, mix the brown sugar, granulated sugar and eggs until creamy.
