Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • Small handful fresh thyme
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 50ml whisky
  • 500ml fresh turkey or chicken stock

Method

  1. While the turkey rests, spoon all but 2 tbsp of the fat from the roasting tin and discard. Place the tin over a low heat, stir the flour into the fat that’s left and cook for 2 minutes, stirring and scraping to incorporate the bits from the bottom of the tin.
  2. Stir in the herbs and whisky and cook for 2-3 minutes. Gradually add the stock, stirring, until smooth. Add the juices from the rested turkey, season, and strain into a jug to serve.
