Who knows how to make real gravy?

As opposed to that nasty, gelatinous, sludge that everyone makes now. Gravy is not meant to come from a pouch or jar of some powdery brown stuff!

You mean with flour? I do. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist though lol
[@11509,Keepitsimple] It's chemistry, actually.🤓 You have add the right stuff, in the right order, and at the right time and temp.👍
Keepitsimple · 51-55, F
Yeah, when it comes out keep stirring to your thickness. Turn on the stove if you need to bring up the temp, lol. [@1137758,UnderLockDown]

ok. the powdery brown stuff is just the gravy in powder is the same as beef/ chicken bouillon which can also be powdered.

however it isn't that hard to make "real" gravy but it requires actually cooking a damn bird to make it. Otherwise, you use powder or bouillon. the jar stuff is gross.

[@372263,Harmonium1923] I love roasting a chicken and making stuffing and gravy has been a long while since I have though...because it is the meal I must get perfect. 😂
[@1845,JaggedLittlePill] If thanksgiving weren't so close I would be going to get a whole chicken and some little red potatoes right now. That sounds so good.

Scrape up the brown bits add flour and milk
I learned how to make a proper roux in my grandmother’s kitchen.
[@328496,bijouxbroussard] Fancy words.🤓 What is the origin of this word (French?), and what is the proper pronunciation?
[@1137758,UnderLockDown] Yes, it’s the base for gravies and sauces, pronounced “roo”. Big in Creole and Cajun dishes.
I haven't as of yet, but it doesn't seem too difficult. 🤔
gotta do scratch ..

[@10925,waleskinder] 😍
you make a stock
reduce it down
stir in real butter to emulcify
[@1077581,ammelee] You make chemistry sound so good.😍

Gravy for meat?
Don't forget to add the booze!
[@227793,Moonpenny] Booze, for gravy? Why?

I grew up making gravy several times per week. Im kinda ashamed of being that Southern. My mom would slap me if I try to serve canned or from a powder gravy. And gravies are so easy to boot.
[@867436,REMsleep] Southern folks, and southern food, are awesome!!
Nothing to be ashamed of.

Me. Brown and white both, from scratch.

Magenta · F
[@1137758,UnderLockDown] Indeed. Turkey gravy. 😋
