Turkey Gravy

  • 1 Tbsp. soft margarine
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup degreased turkey drippings (see note)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (option: can use more broth)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • freshly ground pepper to taste

     Melt margarine in a heavy saucepan over medium heat.  Stir in flour, and cook, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, 1 minute.  Gradually add chicken broth and remaining ingredients, stirring constantly.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened.  Yield: 7 (1/3 cup) servings.

NOTE:  To degrease drippings, place drippings in a large heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag (the fat will rise to the top).  Carefully snip off one small corner of the bag.  Begin draining the drippings into a 4 cup measure or large bowl, stopping before the fat layer reaches the opening.
