"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

1/4 cup fat skimmed from drippings
cup all purpose flour
2 cups drippings
1 Tbs. butter or heavy cream
S and Pto taste

Remove turkey from the pan.
Pour all drippings into a container and let fat rise to the top.
Skim the fat and measure it.
Transfer the fat to large saucepan over medium heat.
Let fat melt then sprinkle on flour. Using a wooden spoon, stir continuously until fat and flour have formed a homogeneous mixture. Continue stirring until flour browns slightly. This takes 4-5 minutes.
The drippings need to be hot before you whisk them into the roux. Whisk them in slowly. Keep whisking until liquids are fully incorporated.
Now bring gravy to a simmer until desired consistency.
Season with S and P and add 1 TBS butter.

Quick fixes:
If too thick - add broth
If too thin - mix 1 TBS butter with 1 TBS flour and whisk in
If lumpy - use strainer
