Tips for making gravy

Here are some tips to help you get the best gravy possible:

If the gravy is lumpy, simply pour your lumpy gravy into a blender and give it a whir for no more than thirty to sixty seconds. Do not over blend.

If the gravy is too thin, just add some heavy cream and gently simmer or stir in a bit of xanthan gum, not more than ¼ tsp.

If the gravy tastes good, but doesn’t look good because a crust or skin may have formed on the gravy just gently blend. Not for too long.

If your gravy looks gray instead of brown, the problem may be in the pan you used. Avoid making gravy in an aluminum (anodized is okay) pan as it can turn the gravy gray. You can also use liquid gravy browner to improve the color.

And lastly, if your gravy doesn’t have that special touch, then whisking in a tablespoon of butter or heavy cream just before serving will give the gravy a rich, satiny texture.
