  • 4 cups turkey or chicken stock low sodium
  • 4 Tablespoon butter
  • 4 Tablespoons flour
  • drippings from your turkey optional
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  • In a large saucepan, melt the 4 Tablespoons of butter. Add in your 4 Tablespoons of flour and whisk until smooth.
  • Strain any turkey drippings to remove extra turkey pieces or seasoning. Pour the drippings into the saucepan, whisking frequently until it thickens.
  • Whisk the mixture slowly over medium heat until it starts to turn brown. Add in 4 cups of turkey stock and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, and whisk constantly for 5-8 minutes until the gravy begins to boil.
  • If your gravy seems too thick at this point, you can add more stock. If it is thinner than you like, you can simmer it until it reaches your desired consistency.
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Enjoy!
