    Serves: 18 

    • 1.1L turkey drippings (fat and juices)
    • 235ml dry white wine
    • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
    • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
    • 25g cornflour, or as needed
    • salt to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Strain the turkey drippings through a fine mesh sieve into a large saucepan. Set aside 250ml of the drippings in a bowl. Stir white wine, rosemary, and black pepper into the drippings in the saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Simmer for about 20 minutes to cook off the alcohol and blend the flavours.
    2. Dissolve the cornflour in the reserved drippings then pour into the gravy and whisk continuously. Allow the gravy to simmer until thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in salt to taste; strain out any large pieces of rosemary before serving.


    If you don't have the full amount of turkey drippings, you can add chicken stock to reach the amount. If you like your gravy thicker, add 1 or 2 more tablespoons of cornflour.

    Fantastic! I may have added a little too much salt, but this was an outstanding recipe that I will make again and again.  -  01 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
