  • Pot
  • Whisk


  • 2 cups turkey drippings
  • 1 tablespoon sweet rice flour (or cornstarch)
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper (optional)


  • Add the turkey drippings to a small pot. Bring it to a boil over medium heat on the stove, and reduce it to a simmer.
  • Combine sweet rice flour and cold water in a small bowl to form a paste.
  • Add the flour paste to the warm turkey drippings, and whisk. The sauce will thicken quickly.
  • When the gravy has thickened to your liking, remove it from the heat, and add salt and pepper to taste if required.



  • You can use cornstarch or all-purpose flour instead of sweet rice flour if you prefer.
  • If you don't have enough turkey drippings, you can add turkey stock, chicken broth or beef stock to make up the amount required.
  • If you want to make cream gravy, you can add half and half, heavy cream, milk or creme fraiche towards the end of the cooking time. Add this to taste.
  • Make sure to use certified gluten free ingredients. This is often indiciated on the nutritional label on the packaging.
