Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
4 turkey wings (about 3 to 4 lbs)
2 medium onions, peeled and quartered
1 cup water
8 cups chicken broth
2 carrots, cut in chunks
2 medium rib celery (with leaves), cut in chunks
4 sprigs fresh thyme or 1 tsp. dried thyme
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp ground pepper

Directions:
Directions:
1- Heat oven to 400 F. Have ready a large roasting pan.
2- Put wings in pan; add onions. Roast 1 1/4 hours or until wings are browned.
3- Put wings and onions in a 5 to 6 quart pot. Add water to roasting pan and stir to scrape up any brown bits on bottom. Add to pot. Add 6 cups broth (refrigerate remaining 2 cups), the carrots, celery, and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 1 1/2 hours.
4- Remove wings. When cool, pull off skin and meat. Save meat for another use.
5- Strain broth into a 3 quart saucepan. Discard vegetables: skim off fat. (TIP: Refrigerate overnight so the fat that rises to the top can solidify and be easily removed.)
6- Whisk flour into remaining 2 cups of broth until blended and smooth.
7- Bring broth in saucepan to a gentle boil. Whisk in flour mixture and boil 4 to 5 minutes to thicken. Stir in butter and pepper. Serve or pour into container and refrigerate up to 1 week or freeze up to 1 month.
