Fool Proof Gravy
How to make fool proof gravy for the holidays
Gravy just like mom's
When I was growing up, I loved my mom's gravy. It was so tasty and yummy. It was almost a meal in itself. It had a meaty, saucy component, and little dumpling like things in it. It was only when I grew up that I realized those dumpling like things were lumps in the gravy.
Today, I could eat gravy on just about anything, even if there are lumps. I especially like gravy all over white bread. That was one of my favorite after school snacks as a kid. When mom would make a roast, I knew the next day I would get gravy on bread.
How to make fool proof gravy
There may be some of you who have watched cooking shows that know lumpy gravy means failed gravy. Good gravy is supposed to have a silky texture, void of lumps.
I am not going to give you a recipe for gravy, I am going to give you a technique for making your best gravy recipe into a smooth, lump free sauce you will proudly serve at any meal
Make the best gravy ever
OK here is my secret:
make your gravy with the best drippings you have. If you are making a beef gravy, add flour to thicken, if turkey gravy or chicken gravy, add corn starch.
Make your gravy just as you always do and don't worry if you have lumps. Once it is thick, remove from the stove top.
Secret to smooth gravy-
Now pour about a cup in your blender, place the cap on and hold the lid on with a hot pad over it. Whiz it up for just a few minutes. Pour the mixture in a gravy boat and serve. Continue this process until all your gravy has gone through the blender.
This method also works amazingly well for cheese sauce too. Try this fool proof gravy method. You will never have lumpy gravy again!
