  3. Add the giblets reserved from the turkey.
  4. Cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

  6. In batches, add the chopped turkey wings to the pot, adding more oil if needed, and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, 8 to 10 minutes per batch.
  7. Return the giblets and wings to the pan.
  8. Add vegetables and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  9. Add 4 quarts water, or enough to cover the ingredients by at least 2 inches.

  11. Reduce heat to low, and add spices.
  12. Simmer uncovered 2 to 3 hours.
