  1. Collect the drippings from the bottom of the turkey pan and put in a saucepan.
  2. Heat the drippings over medium-high heat. Skim the surface layer of fat off the drippings and discard.
  3. Measure and note amount of giblet broth and add to drippings.
  4. Measure 1 tablespoon of arrowroot powder for each cup of giblet broth.
  5. Mix together the arrowroot and cold water and stir until incorporated. Slowly add this slurry to the drippings while stirring. You can add a little at a time until the desired texture is achieved.
  6. Add salt to taste.
  7. If you like a more flavorful gravy, add the bundles of herbs, turn the heat down to medium, and let cook for another 5 minutes – then remove what’s left of the sprigs (or strain) and serve.
  8. Note: Arrowroot loses its thickness when re-heated. To re-heat arrowroot gravy, simply repeat step 5.
