Modified from AllRecipes…perfect for stressfree holidays!

Ingredients

6 turkey wings
2 medium onions, peeled and quartered
1 cup water
2 quarts chicken broth, divided
3/4 cup chopped carrot
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Arrange a single layer of turkey wings in a large roasting pan. Scatter the vegatables over the top of the wings. Sprinkle liberally with olive oil, salt & pepper. Roast in the preheated oven for 1-1/4 hours or until wings are browned.

Place browned wings and veggies in a 5 quart stockpot. Deglaze the roasting pan with white wine and stir, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Pour the the wine from the pan into the stockpot. Stir in 6 cups broth, and thyme. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 1-1/2 hours.

Remove wings from the pot and place on a cutting board. When the wings are cool, pull off the skin and meat. Discard the skin and save the meat for another use. Strain contents of stockpot through a large strainer into a 3 quart saucepan. Press on the vegetables to extract any remaining liquid. Discard the vegetables and skim the fat off the liquid. Bring the contents of the pot to a gentle boil.

In a medium bowl, whisk flour into the remaining 2 cups chicken broth until smooth. Gradually whisk the flour mixture into the simmering turkey broth; simmer 3-4 minutes or until the gravy has thickened. Stir in the butter and pepper. Serve immediately or pour into containers and refrigerate or freeze.
