Ingredients

  • drippings from the roasting pan
  • 2 14-ounce cans chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. When the turkey is cool enough to handle, move it to a large platter. Spoon 4 tablespoons of fat from the drippings in the roasting pan into a medium saucepan and set aside. Discard any extra fat that remains in the roasting pan.
  2. Pour the chicken broth into the roasting pan and place over medium-low heat. Stir to loosen any bits stuck to the pan; remove from heat. Whisk the flour into the fat in the saucepan, then add the contents of the roasting pan to the saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the gravy thickens and boils, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. TO FAKE IT...AND SAVE 15 MINUTES:
    Open two 12-oz. jars turkey gravy and heat with 2 tablespoons dry vermouth. Total time: 10 minutes.

Quick Tip

Simple Roast Chicken
Free-range birds have a more robust turkey flavor and substantial texture than coop-raised ones. They tend to be moist but not exceptionally so.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
