Grandma Chubby's Turkey Gravy
Gravies (Almost) Like Grandma's
During the winter holidays, and especially Thanksgiving, our large and extended family would return to our childhood home in St. Paul and celebrate a grand feast together. Great fun, great food, a lot of laughter and sometimes a bit of chaos in the kitchen. When it was gravy time, we all knew to step aside and concede the stove, the whole kitchen, to Grandma Chubby as she prepared her gravy. No distractions allowed - this was serious business! We're delighted to share our version of Grandma Chubby's turkey gravy, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Happy Holidays.
1 1/2 ounces Glace de Volaille Gold® diluted in 2 cups boiling water
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
3 heaping tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup water
Additional salt and pepper to taste
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the diluted Glace de Volaille Gold® and the butter, and bring to a simmer.
Combine the flour, salt, pepper, and water in a container with a lid. Shake well, until the mixture is free of lumps.
Slowly add the flour-water mixture to the simmering stock, whisking constantly, until the gravy comes back to a simmer and reaches the desired consistency.
Simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
