Christmas Turkey Gravy
Using our chicken bone broth, you can make your own delicious turkey gravy at home.
Adding our bone broth means you will bring depth and extra nutrition to your gravy. Store bought gravies are often high in sodium and have other bulking agents and fillers, but using our chicken broth you can create a great gravy for everyone in the family to use.
- Drippings from roasted turkey
- 60g all-purpose flour
- 1 litre British Broth Company chicken broth
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional: 60ml dry white wine
- Optional: Fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary, chopped
- After roasting your turkey, transfer it to a cutting board to rest. Pour the pan drippings into a measuring cup and let the fat rise to the top. Skim off and reserve 60ml of the fat.
- Place the roasting pan on the stove over medium heat. Add the reserved fat and sprinkle in the flour. Use a whisk to combine the flour with the fat, stirring constantly to make a roux. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the roux is golden brown.
- Gradually whisk in the chicken broth, making sure to incorporate the roux smoothly. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly.
- If you have any stuck bits on the bottom of the roasting pan (called fond), add a bit of broth and use a spoon to scrape them up. This adds flavor to the gravy.
- Let the gravy simmer for 5-10 minutes or until it thickens to your desired consistency. If the gravy is too thick, you can add more broth. If it’s too thin, you can let it simmer a bit longer.
- Season the gravy with salt and pepper to taste. If you like, you can also add a splash of dry white wine for extra flavor. Stir in fresh herbs if desired.
- Once the gravy reaches the desired consistency and flavor, strain it through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any lumps or solids.
- Serve the turkey gravy warm alongside your roasted turkey.
Enjoy your delicious homemade turkey gravy!
