Turkey Gravy

Baste your turkey with a mixture of wine and chicken broth, which will keep the turkey moist without adding fat.  Then you can use the defatted drippings and chicken broth to make a delicious, low-fat gravy.

2 c. mixture of clear chicken broth and defatted  turkey drippings
¼ c. cold water
2 T. cornstarch
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Measure the defatted turkey drippings and add chicken broth to make 2 cups.  Pour into a saucepan and heat to boiling. 

Combine the water and cornstarch, beating until smooth, or shake the mixture in a tightly capped jar.  Gradually add this mixture to the chicken broth and turkey drippings.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick.  Add pepper to taste.
