Applejack Giblet Gravy
A touch of Applejack spikes the flavor of this gravy, adding a subtle hint of the fermented and distilled, tree-ripened apples. It’s a terrific complement to the apple cider-brined turkey.
The gravy can be made up to 1 day in advance. Cover and refrigerate. Reheat gently just before serving.
