Pass the gravy Instructable please.
Step 1: Gather materials
- drippings (1/2 cup not including fat)
- cornstarch of flour (1 or 2 tablespoons)
- broth (1 cup of chicken, turkey or beef - whatever flavor you like)
- ice water
- mixing bowl
If you have less drippings then I did, that's fine, my drippings are from a pretty big turkey. Just use whatever you have available. You can always add more broth to increase your gravy volume.
Step 2: Pour drippings into pan and heat
If you don't have a fat separator, simply use a spoon to skim off the top layer of fat from your juices. It will be easier to skim off the fat if you have the drippings in something tall and narrow (like a drinking glass) and harder to do this if your fat in something wide (like a bowl).
Begin heating up the juices, but try not to burn or boil them. Try starting off with a medium to low heat and adjust as necessary.
