How to Make Home-Style Gravy

This home-style gravy is a great accompaniment to a nicely roasted turkey. Made over a holiday meal this can be used over every side.

-Hey everyone, I'm Judith. Well, today, I'm gonna be showing you how to make home style gravy, a fantastic accompaniment with some nice roast turkey. So, what you will need for this is pan drippings from roast turkey; 1/4 cup of all purpose flour; chicken broth or water. So first things first, let's get our saucepan. Now, we have been roasting a turkey and we just go happen to get our drippings, our lovely fast from there. We've skinned actually the excess fat from the lovely juice that comes from the turkey when you roast it. So, that goes into our saucepan there. Put that on medium heat. In goes our flour and that's gonna thicken up our gravy. So, if you don't wanna put all in at once that's fine, just stir, get that all going. Depending on how thick you obviously like your gravy, depends on how much more flour you wanna put in. Just put the rest of it in there. Give that a good stir and as you see that's coming together beautifully. Then, we'll add in our broth. So, obviously, if you don't have broth, you can just put in water, but this is just gonna add some much more flavor. So, we're gonna cook and stir our gravy on a medium heat until it gets nice and thick and bubbly. As you can see, it's bubbling up there pretty quickly. So, keep giving it a good stir until you get it to the consistency that you like. Look at that, and that should make about 2 cups and so that will be perfect of a nice roast turkey or chicken or whatever you're making. So as our gravy has thickened up nicely, we can just transfer that into a measuring jug or bowl, whatever is easiest. Oh, smells gorgeous. Those pan drippings really do make a difference in the flavor of your gravy, beautiful, give that a nice little stir, pull that over your roast turkey on thanksgiving and you will be on very happy job. There you go everyone. That's how you make home style gravy.
