Wild Mushroom Gravy

Serves: Makes about 7 cups

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces dried porcini mushrooms
  • 4 cups poultry stock or low-salt chicken broth, divided
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 pound fresh wild and domestic mushrooms such as chanterelle, shitake and crimini, cleaned, stemmed and sliced
  • ½ cup dry white wine, divided
  • 3 tablespoons turkey fat drippings or unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 large shallot, chopped (about ½ cup)
  • 3 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage leaves
  • ½ cup crème fraîche
  • 1½ teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon


Procedures:

Make sure to save the turkey neck and giblets, except the liver, to make a delicious stock to flavor your gravy.

Add stock and dried porcinis to a medium saucepan, place over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low, cover and steep dried mushrooms while preparing gravy.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add knob of butter. When foam subsides, add mushrooms to cover the bottom of the pan in a single layer. Season mushrooms with salt and pepper, and cook until browned and tender, about 3 minutes. Add enough wine to the pan to deglaze, when pan is almost dry, transfer mushrooms to a plate or bowl and set aside, repeat cooking procedure with remaining mushrooms.

In a large skillet or empty turkey roasting pan, over medium-high heat, add turkey fat drippings. Add shallot and garlic. Cook until translucent, about a minute. Reduce heat to medium-low, whisk in flour to make a thick paste, called a roux; cook until flour just lightly colors and smells like toasted almonds, about 2 minutes.

Strain stock through a fine-mesh sieve into a large liquid measuring cup or pitcher. Increase the heat under the skillet with the roux to medium-high. Slowly pour stock into the skillet while whisking vigorously. Once gravy is thickened and bubbling, add sautéed mushrooms and herbs. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, or until gravy has a rich velvety texture. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. (Recipe can be prepared up to this stage 1 to 2 days ahead, cover and refrigerate, rewarm before continuing.)

To finish: Whisk crème fraîche and tarragon into gravy and serve.
