How to make turkey gravy

One of the most frequent e-mail questions.

"How do I make gravy?"

It is easy...

For turkey gravy, you will need the following.

• 5 Cups turkey stock (this sounds like a lot, and if you use a cooking bag, you will have about this much. (If not, make your own stock using giblets and neck/or chicken broth)

• 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
• 1/2 tsp Ground black pepper
• 1/4 tsp Celery salt
• 1 Cup milk, or cream
• 1 tsp Poultry seasoning
• 1 tsp Salt

Take a skillet or electric frying pan and add the turkey stock. (I do not like using a saucepan to make gravy. It seems to take less cooking time in a skillet.)

Bring it to a boil.

Mix flour with milk or cream in a mason jar, or other covered container and shake until SMOOTH.

Slowly whisk into the turkey stock.

Add salt, pepper, poultry seasoning and celery salt.

Now bring it to a boil. Reduce the flame and simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes or till thickened.

Please use a whisk, and stir often.
