Turkey Gravy Recipe

Turkey Gravy Recipe
What would a delicious turkey dinner be without gravy? To me, sauces are the most interesting part of a meal, especially when you are cooking large cuts of roasted meat. You can achieve much more complicated and complex flavors inside of a sauce than you will ever be able to transition consistently through the entirety of the roast. This is where sauces and gravies come into play and you can truly see and taste their brilliance. This gravy is designed with chemo patients in mind and also to use the pan drippings from my brined turkey recipe. Tasting Guidelines: Taste is savory. Weight is medium. Texture is soft. Good for people with low to severe treatment side effects. Emotional response of home cooked holiday love. Best categorized as traditional American.
