First off Happy New Year! I know I haven’t posted in a while but I was purposely waiting for the New Year to start fresh. I particularly was waiting because for Christmas I got a new camera so I can’t wait to take lots more pictures for my blog and hopefully improve throughout the year.
I know Christmas is now over and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas I know I really enjoyed it but it’s now time to get back to work and into a routine. A couple of weeks ago the team at Essential Cuisine sent me out a package which I saved to go with my Christmas dinner as in the package was Turkey Gravy mix. My favourite part of Christmas is the food which I’m sure many of you will agree. My Christmas dinner is traditional and includes Turkey, Ham, Roast Potatoes, some Veg and of course gravy!
We normally have 3 courses a starter, main and dessert. Our starter is normally a prawn and smoked salmon salad which is always amazing. Our main is the usual Turkey and Ham and our dessert this year was Meringue with strawberries and fresh cream.
As I mentioned essential cuisine sent me out some turkey gravy mix which we used with our Christmas dinner. It was honestly one of the nicest gravy’s I’ve ever had and my family would agree. It comes in a cute little pot which is perfect for storing away in the press and can be used a couple of times which is great. As it’s not out until Feb 2018 I can use what’s left throughout the year even with chicken. You can use the gravy on its own or add it to the meat juices which is what we did and it tasted delicious.
To make the gravy simply whisk 3 teaspoons of gravy mix into 250ml of water in a suitable saucepan ( if you want add the meat juices as well I added them in at this point when making the gravy) slowly bring to the boil and stir constantly until thickened. Allow to simmer on a low heat for about 3 minutes and then serve your perfect Christmas Gravy!
