Love this recipe although on my first attempt I never quite made it past the bourbon. This was a huge hit at my Thanksgiving Dinner. The apple gives this gravy a great taste and the amount of bourbon adds a very subtle flavor. I fried my turkey and substitued the pan juices for chicken stock. I would highly recommend this recipe.
