The easiest way is to pour your liquid in a jar and add the flour, put the top on and shake it vigoursly to mix. Have your fat melted in a pan and slowly whisk in your flour mixture. The gravy thickens as it heats.

Another method is to make a roux by melting the fat in a pan and adding the flour. Cook until the flour is golden. Whisk in the liquid and cook until thick and bubbly.

If your are making sausage gravy, use flour and milk. Cook your sausage in a skillet and pour off the grease, leaving the 2 Tbl of fat in the pan. Stir in the milk/flour mixture and heat until thick and bubbly.

If you are making turkey gravy, use broth, flour and fat from your turkey (butter will work too). In a sauce pan mix fat and flour and whisk in broth. Or use the good 'ol gravy jar and whisk into a pan with the warm fat.
