  Categories: Sauces, Diabetic, Low-fat/cal
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1 c  Broth & defatted drippings          1 pn Salt
       2 ts All purpose flour                   1 pn Freshly ground pepper
 	    1 ts Cornstarch			     1 pn Basil (beef) or sage
      (chick)
       1 ts Ketchup                        
  
   A waist-watcher gravy - quite thin.  Serve over meat or potatoes.
   
   Cook up bones as for soup, strain liquid.  Refrigerate overnight or
   until white fat on top can be removed with a spoon.  Refrigerate meat
   drippings from the pan and skim off the fat.
   
   Combine broth, flour and cornstarch in a screw-top jar, cover and
   shake until well combined or use a blender for a larger batch.  Pour
   into saucepan, stir in ketchup, salt, pepper and basil for beef (or
   sage for turkey, or other herb of your choice).  Stir-cook over
   medium heat until gravy thickens.  (Mine didn't thicken but I had
   some lumps of flour or cornstarch.)  Makes about 1 cup.
