This Apple Cider Turkey Gravy turns plain-jane dishes into something really special. It’s easy to make, savory sweet, and just right for Thanksgiving.
You’ve got your roasted turkey and ham resting on the counter top. You’ve got piping-hot sweet potatoes and buttery stuffing in the oven… and creamy mashed potatoes on the stove top. What are you missing? That’s right, gravy. What would Thanksgiving dinner be (or any holiday meal for that matter) without rich silky gravy to drizzle over the top?
It would be blah, that’s what. Like an ice cream sundae with no cherry on top or a plate of chocolate chip cookies with no milk for dipping. A holiday meal with no gravy is just wrong, nearly sinful. You’ve spent hours building a custom car, but have no key to start the ignition, you see what I’m getting at?
Let’s not make that mistake this year. A gorgeous buttery Apple Cider Turkey Gravy with apple flavor bursting through is just moments away.
First take the dripping from your turkey pan (or substitute turkey stock and melted butter) and add a good dose of McCormick herbs to it.
Whisk some cold apple cider with flour to thicken and flavor the gravy. Add the flour mixture to the dripping and whisk over medium heat until a thick silky consistency emerges. Salt and pepper to taste.
Your family will be so thankful you did.
