Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • Small handful fresh thyme
  • 1 fresh bay leaf

  2. Stir in the herbs and wine and cook for 2-3 minutes, then gradually stir in the stock. Check the seasoning and whisk in the redcurrant jelly and any juices from the resting turkey. Pour into a warmed jug to serve.
