1. Fry the giblets (all the bits bar the liver) in a pan with the onion. Onion skin gives the stock colour (go organic for pesticide-free gravy). Add the herbs and veg.
2. Pour in 1½ litres (3 pints) of water. Crack in some pepper and sprinkle in sea salt. Bring to the boil, then simmer gently without a lid till about half the liquid has evaporated. Strain the stock and set aside.
3. Put your roasting tin on a medium high heat (take your turkey or chicken out first). Let it bubble and pour in a glass of wine. Stir it as it comes back to the boil. Pour in your very delicious stock. Let it simmer down.
4. Taste it. Taste good? Good. Add a little more seasoning if needed. Reduce it more for a thicker gravy. Strain it and squeeze out the liquid with a spoon. Knockout homemade gravy, and not a granule in sight. Roast potatoes never had it so good.
