  • Transfer drippings to a blender; add coconut milk, butter, lemongrass, and brown sugar. Process until smooth, about 30 seconds. Set aside 2 tablespoons coconut milk mixture. Pour remaining coconut milk mixture into a small saucepan. Stir together cornstarch and reserved 2 tablespoons coconut mixture. Bring coconut milk mixture in saucepan to a simmer over medium; stir in cornstarch mixture. Simmer, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve with Dry-Brined Spatchcocked Turkey.
