A make-ahead gravy that doesn’t rely on turkey drippings or a roux. The gravy’s depth of flavor comes from roasted poultry bones and—surprise!—a sprinkle of MSG, which has an umami-to-the-max effect. (Despite exaggerated fearmongering reports in the ’70s, MSG is harmless in such small quantities; read more here.) If you have the backbone from breaking down the turkey into pieces, use it in tandem with the wings.
