  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

Remove wing tips from turkey. Cut neck into 3 or 4 pieces. Cut heart and gizzard in half and rinse well under cold water. Set all pieces aside for stock.

Add mushrooms, brandy and remaining salt to pan juices; cook over medium-low heat until mushrooms are wilted, about 2 minutes.

Sprinkle with flour; cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Stir in stock; simmer until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in lemon juice. Serve in gravy boat along with turkey and stuffing.
