Knowing how to make gravy, quickly and easily from scratch can come in handy.
Once you have mastered the basics, you can easily make variations by simply adding your meat, chicken, or seafood.
It's quite simple. I didn’t always know this though. When I was about 15 years old, my Godmother sent my cousin and I to the kitchen to make some gravy. No instructions or recipe, just a list of ingredients.
We added cooking oil, flour, and onions in many different amounts. It was a mess! We must have thrown out at least five skillets full of whitish blobs in to the trash.
Eventually, we figured out that we were adding way too much flour and not putting in any tomato paste.
I have since learned how to cook it. And now you can too. Once you master this, you can use this skill for:
fish, corned beef ,chicken gravy,
meat, meatballs, crawfish, or smoked fish variations.
