3Add enough turkey stock to fill 4 c. measure, pour into saucepan, bring to a boil.

4Reduce heat, simmer until thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

5For lower fat version: Refrigerate drippings in a 4 c. measure, skim off and discard fat, fill with turkey broth; pour into saucepan.

6Bring to a boil; stir in 1/3 c. cornstarch mixed with 1/3 c. cold water, reduce heat; stir frequently until thickened. Gravy will be clearer than gravy made with flour.
