Porcini Mushroom Gravy
drippings from turkey
2 C mushroom stock (stewed mushrooms in vegetable or chicken stock)
1 T dried porcini mushrooms
1/4 C arrowroot powder

Soak porcini mushrooms in stock for 10 minutes (you can do this before
the turkey is done), then blend on high until smooth. Combine stock
and drippings in a saucepan over medium heat and reduce to taste.
If the drippings have lumpy bits in them you can blend it as well.

In a small glass, add enough cold water to the arrowroot powder
to make a thin liquid (1/4 C or less). While stirring constantly,
add arrowroot to the gravy to desired thickness.
