"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
Chicken or turkey broth or fresh drippings. The amount you need will depend on how many servings you would like.
Flour or corn starch to thicken.

Directions:
Directions:
If using drippings from turkey or chicken, pour drippings through strainer into hot pan. If you don't have drippings use good chicken broth.
The heat should be all the way up on the burner, power burners are great for this.
Let the drippings cook down in pan, only stirring occasionally. As it cooks down, the color will darken into a golden brown.
After drippings have reduced by at least half, (more is even better of you have time) add chicken broth and let cook until it begins to reduce again. When you have reached the level of flavor that you like (it should be a rich, salty flavor) mix a couple of tablespoons of flour and cold chicken broth in a bowl or mason jar until lump free. Slowly pour mixture into gravy mix while mixing quickly with a whisk. Don't add too much flour. Let the flour cook in the gravy for about five minutes.
The secret is, you have to let the broth and drippings cook a long time at the high heat, when you think it has been long enough, let it cook another ten minutes or so. You can't rush good gravy!
If it doesn't seem like you have enough, add more broth and repeat the steps above, after all you can never have too much gravy!
