Turkey Gravy

  • Drippings from a roasted turkey
  • Turkey stock
  • 6 tablespoon - Flour
  • Put the turkey aside after cooking.
  • Take the pan where the turkey was roasted and pour all the drippings into a glass-measuring cup, which can accommodate 1 quart of liquid.
  • Don't scrape any browned bits that are left on the bottom of the roasting pan. (They are actually quite tasty and give the gravy its flavor.)
  • Let the drippings stand until the fat rises to the top of the measuring cup.
  • Take out the fat and preserve.
  • Add stock so that there are 4 cups of liquid in the measuring cup.
  • Set the roasting pan over medium heat.
  • Spoon out 6 tablespoon of the reserved fat and put it back in the roasting pan.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the fat and whisk.
  • Whisk flour and fat for 1 to 2 minutes until the flour turns into a nice golden-brown color.
  • Pour the drippings and stock mixture into the roasting pan and scrape off the encrusted bits on the bottom of the pan.
  • Simmer the mixture for 2 to 3 minutes, and whisk it often.
  • Adjust the thickness of the gravy.
  • If it is too thin, simmer the gas, and keep it whisking often until the gravy is thick enough as you desire.
  • If it is too thick, blend it with a little more stock.
  • Season the gravy with salt and pepper to taste.
  • If you want to get rid of the encrusted bits strain it.
  • Pour the gravy into a bowl and serve.
