When gravy is so easy and delicious to make from scratch, why not go for it?
When you add cornstarch to gravy, you should first dilute it in a little bit of cold water, then add it to your gravy.
Homemade Brown Gravy
Makes several servings
1 extra extra large can of chicken stock
Drippings from your turkey (I had quite a lot, as I used a roaster oven)
Beef Base (I used the a bullion that comes in a paste)
Cornstarch mixed with a little cold water
1. Add stock to turkey dripping and heat until simmering. Add a small spoonful of beef base and whisk until incorporated. Add cornstarch and water mixture (I used a few tablespoons with 1/4 cup of water, and added this several times until it was thick enough). Whisk and continue simmering until desired thickness is reached.
