Turkey Gravy

Ingredients

  • 1 CUP Turkey Drippings
  • 4 CUPS Chicken or Turkey Stock, low-sodium
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 TBSP Fresh Sage, finely chopped (or 2 TSP dry)
  • 2 TBSP Fresh Thyme Leaves (or 2 TSP dry)
  • 1 CUP Milk, non-dairy works too if necessary
  • 1/4 CUP Cornstarch, Whole Wheat Flour or gluten-free flour
  • Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Set your roasting pan with the turkey drippings on medium-high heat on the stove-top.
  2. Add stock to pan, stir and scrape any turkey bits from the bottom of the roasting pan.
  3. Strain and pour this gravy liquid into a bowl and place it in the fridge for about 15-30 minutes to let the fat float and harden at the top.
  4. Remove hardened fat with a spoon and place the stock into a saucepan. Add in garlic, sage and thyme.
  5. Place saucepan over medium heat and bring to simmer. Continue to simmer until stock is reduced by 1/4, or until about 3 cups of stock remain.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk milk and cornstarch until well combined.
  7. Pour milk mixture into stock, stirring slowly.
  8. Continue to simmer and stir frequently until stock thickens, about 3 to 5 minutes.
