It has come to my attention that there are people buying those little packages of gravy mix. Oh, please don’t do that. There is absolutely no comparison between that nasty stuff and real, honest-to-goodness gravy. Gravy has a reputation for being difficult to make but it really isn’t. Follow along and I’ll tell you how to make the real stuff which will have your family falling at your feet in praise. Or at least smacking their lips before they polish off their food and leave you to clean up that monstrous mess in the kitchen. Sorry, but I don’t have any advice about that part.
Dee’s Homemade Turkey Gravy
- 4 cups of turkey drippings (with fat removed) If you don’t have quite that much, you can fill in with a good quality chicken broth or stock, preferably organic or all-natural in a carton, not can.
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 4 tablespoons butter or fat you removed from the drippings or combination (Please don’t even think about using margarine.)
