- Strain pan drippings from Apple-Maple Turkey into a large measuring cup. Discard solids and skim off fat. Add enough broth to make 3 1/2 cups(875 mL). Set aside. In a bowl, use a fork to blend together the butter and flour, forming a paste. Set aside.
- Set roasting pan on stove over medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook until softened, about 3 min. Stir in maple syrup and cook until caramelized, about 1 min. Stir in apple cider, scraping up brown bits from bottom of pan, and simmer 3 to 4 min. Stir in broth mixture and bring to a simmer. Slowly whisk in butter paste until incorporated. Return to a simmer and cook, whisking occasionally, until thickened, about 10 min. Season with salt and pepper. Strain shallots if smooth gravy is desired, then transfer to a gravy boat to serve.
Sweetened with apple cider and maple syrup, this unexpected gravy is the perfect complement.
