Day-Before Gravy

I’ve been searching for a gravy recipe I can do ahead of time, since by the time I have the turkey and sides ready to go on the holiday table, I’m usually too frazzled to successfully turn the pan drippings into gravy.

This one uses bacon drippings and tamari as a savory flavor base, and can be made the day before a holiday feast.
