Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.


Peel and chop the onion, celery, carrot and garlic roughly. Place in a roasting pan with the thyme, bay leaf and chicken wings (or meat bones). Season well and roast until golden brown, approx. 30-40 minutes.


Transfer the vegetables and wings to a large pot and add the tomato paste and miso paste. Cover with the cold water. Slowly bring to a gentle simmer over a low heat and allow to simmer for 30 minutes until thickened and reduced.


Strain the gravy. Allow to cool then pour into a zip-top bag. Freeze until you need it.


When ready to use, defrost the gravy. When the turkey/roast meat comes out of the oven, remove from the roasting tray, cover with foil and allow to rest. Add the defrosted gravy to a saucepan and place it over a medium heat. Bring to a simmer, scraping the bottom of the pan to remove all the pan juices. Adjust the seasoning, decant into a serving jug to serve.
