Prepare the slurry*: In a small bowl, add the cornstach and water (1/2 cup, 1 cup), combine. Add the cornstarch & water, rosemary, thyme, water (1 cup, 2 cup) to a pan. Stirring constantly, bring to a simmer. Let simmer about 2-3 minutes. Add more water, 2 tbsp at a time, if you would like thinner gravy.
*Slurry is the combination of water and cornstarch
Add the dripping: Scrape the turkey drippings from the baking sheet you cooked the turkey on.
Whisk in the turkey dripping: Whisk the turkey dripping in the gravy. They will change the colour from light to a beautiful golden.
Bring to a boil: Bring the gravy to a boil. Pour in a gravy serving dish and serve.
