Hey everyone, I'm Jason Bailin from Whipped & Beaten Culinary Works. I've written two cookbooks, but I can't tell you their names because they're a bit un-PC, and some of you may freak out. But if you have a good sense of humor, Google "Whipped & Beaten Culinary Works," but don't go if you get offended easily because then they may not be for you. So especially around holiday time, people come to me and ask me you know, I hate making my own gravy, I'd just rather buy it in the store but I don't necessarily like what it tastes like. How do I make canned gravy taste better? Well, I'm glad you asked. I've found the first great way is with wine, either white wine or red wine. Now with the beef gravy, the darker gravy you're going to want to use the darker wines, red wine, Marcello wine, even some sherry wine. It all works very well, you know, put probably about I would say anywhere from a half a cup to three quarters of a cup into the canned gravy. I found fresh herbs such as chives, parsley and even dill really enhance the flavor of these canned gravies. You know, and then you also have your turkey drippings that you use from the turkey, you know, just pour them in there as well. Everything that's fresh can make a canned item taste better, even garlic and onions, just chop a little bit up, dice in there, mix it around, all good. If you are finding that with the wine and with the turkey drippings that it's getting a little bit too thin for what you want, you can always add a little bit more flour in there just to thicken it up but remember with the flour, add a little bit first, stir it, let it simmer for about five to ten minutes, see how it thickens up and then add more. And that's how you make your canned gravy taste better. I'm Jason Bailin from Whipped & Beaten Culinary Works.
