It goes into stock, which makes gravy.
You can just eat it also.

Season a cook it the same as the turkey. I actually buy a whole pack of them...it's the best part of the turkey, IMO.

My gram used to boil the neck along bizarre parts to make flavoring for the gravy. Then she fed it to the cats.

That's what I do. I use all the innards and neck for gravy flavor, then feed the solids to the dogs. I don't give them the neck though, because that has bones in it, and I don't want to be bothered de-boning it, nor do I want my dogs to choke and die.

^That's giblet gravy. The liver, heart, gizzard, and neck go in it. I like eating those parts though.

You can also grind it up/puree it with all the other gibs to make gravy. My friend's mom does it like that and it's pretty tasty gravy. Nice and smooth.

The neck gets roasted with the rest of the turkey. And everyone knows, I get the neck!! If the neck goes missing there will be fighting!

The neck, gizzard, heart, and liver go into a skillet with garlic salt pepper and then they go into my stomach. : )

Boil it and use the scrumptious meat in with the organ meats in my giblet gravy.

No, don't need to brown it first.

That seems to be what your avatar is saying! LOL

I admit to being a bit grossed out by the neck, but the meat is soooo worth the effort of overcoming the squickies.

I use it for my giblet gravy, but before I cook it I put it between my legs and run around freaking people out. It looks like a man's dick to me.

Frau, for stock-making, you can make white or brown stock, white stock used when you want a lighter-colored preparation. For turkey stock, brown makes more sense since it has a stronger flavor and you're going to use it for gravy, which you want to be brown anyway.

For brown stock, you roast bones first along with mirepoix. I buy the bones at the market along with the turkey. If you cook your turkey in parts, you'll have the carcass left over to roast though I still get more bones to get a more intensely flavored stock. You can boost it with chicken bones as well. Chicken feet make fantastic stock.
