The Best Turkey Gravy

Here are some easy steps from the Stroudsmoor Chefs for making the best turkey gravy at home: 

  1. Clean, dress and cook your turkey as you do each year.
  2. When finished, remove from the oven and let rest at least 25 minutes.
  3. Transfer turkey to your carving board – keeping it in a warm area around the stove or under a heat lamp – do not discard the pan drippings.
  4. Skim the turkey fat off the top of the pan drippings – transfer to a medium sauce pan. Retain the balance of the drippings for addition to the gravy mixture later.
  5. Add 2-3 tablespoons of all purpose flour to the sauce pan and whisk over low/medium heat (about 3-5 minutes).
  6. Pour the remaining pan drippings into the flour mix and cook/stirring for another 5-minutes, or until desired consistency.

The Best Gravy Tips:  

  1. Keep some of your favorite turkey or chicken stock on hand in case you need to make more than the natural drippings will allow.  
  2. When all else false, buy Stroudsmoor Turkey Gravy at Stroudsmoor Inn Towne Bakery, 125 Broad Street in Stroudsburg, or join us at the Inn for The Thanksgiving Buffet . . .

Arrange a table for Thanksgiving

The tradition of setting the holiday table is not just to amaze your guests with china and crystal, but rather to impress upon them the tradition of hospitality and the blessings of family and friends. The table is the gathering place for a meal prepared by loving hands using recipes that have been passed on from generation to generation, the platform for good conversation to catch up on life and love, and a stage where a grand memory will play out and live on forever. From our house to yours, we wish you a blessed holiday season, The Pirone Family.
