Read on to learn how to make perfect turkey gravy.
1. Heat 4 cups of water in a saucepan until hot. Don’t allow it to boil.
2. Remove the cooked turkey to a cutting board. Use a gravy separator or ladle to remove most of the fat from the roasting pan. Set aside ¼ cup of fat.
3. Transfer the roasting pan to the stove top, and place it on two burners at medium heat. Add ½ cup of water and stir, scraping bits from the bottom of the pan. Pour the liquid from the roasting pan into the saucepan of hot water.
4. Add the ¼ cup of reserved fat to the roasting pan. Continue heating over medium heat as you whisk in ¼ cup of flour. Cook and stir constantly until the mixture darkens to a golden color.
5. Transfer the fat-flour mixture to a large saucepan. Whisk in the hot water and drippings. Simmer over medium height about 5 minutes or until thickened.
6. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a gravy boat.
- Avoid lumps by using a wire whisk to stir the gravy.
- If your gravy becomes lumpy, strain it through a strainer or colander.
