  • 1

    stalk celery, chopped

  • 1

    onion, chopped

  • Unsalted butter, melted

  • 1/2

Combine giblets, celery, onion, and 6 cups water in a large pot. bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, 1 hour. Pass mixture through a fine sieve. Reserve stock and giblets; discard other solids. Tilt roasting pan and skim fat from top with a spoon, or pour drippings into a fat separator. Combine 1/2 cup fat (add melted butter as needed to reach 1/2 cup) with flour in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture becomes nutty and golden and has texture of wet sand, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Place roasting pan across 2 burners over medium heat; stir reserved stock into drippings. Bring to a simmer, stirring and scraping up browned bits.
