I too had no drippings, but I absolutely loved the idea of pureeing the vegetables. Excellent gravy, Johnney!

I made several modifications to the recipe and it was great. First, I made the stock a couple of days in advance, we deep fry our turkey- no drippings - I used chicken dripppings instead. Then I just reheated the stock and followed the remaining directions on Christmas. I plan on making this again....
