Author Notes: This is my Nona's (Italian for Grandmother) handed down recipe and with a few of my added tweaks my family has found this to be one of the best ever gravies for any meal. Cook turkey as directed add some fresh sage, tyme and lemon into the cavity of the bird, the herbs will marry into the drippings and will give added flavor for your gravy. Remove turkey, place your AlClad roasting pan with all the drippings on top of stove, under medium low heat scrape all the drippings off the bottom, add 1 tsp Kitchen Bouquet, 1 cup dry Marsala wine, 1 Tlbs cornstarch mix with about 1/3 cup water. Pour into the gravy and stir with whisk until thickens add salt & pepper to taste. Fast and simple and will bring warm smiles to the table. - MJ710
