Serves 8| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:
- Roasting pan and its contents from Orange-Rosemary Roasted Turkey
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 1 to 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick)
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- kosher salt and black pepper
- Discard the carrots and onions from the roasting pan; reserve the roasted oranges. Strain the pan drippings into a large measuring cup or bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes, then skim off and discard the fat. (Alternatively, use a fat separator.) Squeeze the juice of the roasted oranges into the cup of skimmed drippings.
- Place the empty roasting pan over 2 burners. Add the wine and cook over medium-high heat, scraping up the bits stuck to the pan, 1 minute. Pour the liquid into the skimmed drippings and add enough broth to make a total of 4 cups of liquid.
- Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, whisking, until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Whisk in the broth mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Strain, if desired, before serving.

If your gravy looks too pale to you, try a few shakes of soy sauce, keeping in mind that color is only a cosmetic concern, unrelated to flavor.
