Hard Cider Gravy!

This is a fun twist on regular, old gravy and it is so yummy!

Serves 8

Drippings from roasted turkey, still in roasting pan
1-cup hard cider or you could use dry white wine (but what’s the fun in that?)
2 to 3 cups chicken broth
4 tablespoons butter (I use Earth Balance dairy & soy-free buttery spread)
1/3-cup gluten-free flour of choice
Salt and Pepper

How to Make It:
{    Strain the drippings into a large measuring cup or bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes, then skim off and discard the fat. (If you have one of those fat separators thing-a-ma-jigs, you could use that too!).
{    Place the empty pan over 2 burners over medium-high heat. Add the cider and cook for 1 minute, scraping up the bits stuck to the pan. Pour into the skimmed drippings and add enough broth to make a total of 4 cups.
{    Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-heat. Cook the flour, whisking until golden, for about 4 to 5 minutes. Whisk in the broth mixture and bring to a boil.
{    Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 8 to 10 minutes.
{    Season with 1/2-teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Strain and serve warm.
{    Enjoy!
