Homemade Turkey Gravy
  • Roasted Turkey drippings skimmed of fat (make the perfect one here:)
  • 1/4 to 3/4 cup water depending on how much dripping you have)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (3/4 tsp for larger bird)
  • 1 tbsp honey (2 tbsp for larger bird)
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  1. Heat drippings, add water, salt and honey.
  2. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and 1/4 cup water to make slurry and add it to the broth. Raise heat until it boils then reduce to a simmer until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Put in a mason jar for a rustic, practical touch to keep it warm!
