  • 2 1/2 cups of chicken stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper

To Make The Gravy

  • put the butter in a sauce pan and let it melt on a medium heat
  • after that, add the all purpose flour while stirring continuously for 2 to 3 minutes to prevent it from forming a lump
  • now add the chicken broth in bit by bit and stir it along
  • add the turkey stock in , season it with salt and pepper
  • Cook for 2 to 3 minutes and the gravy is ready

Finally, the consistency of the gravy you want will depend on how much chicken broth and flour you want to add. For example, if you want it thicker, use more flour and less chicken stock. How how do you like your turkey, with or washout gravy?
