How To Make Homemade Gravy

How To Make Homemade Gravy via

You can’t really have a good Southern Sunday dinner without a big gravy boat filled with rich, flavorful gravy. Making gravy is more of a technique than a recipe, in my mind. The first few times I tried my hand at it, I ended up with super thick gravy and lumps of uncooked thickener that withstood all attempts at straining. After just a few more tries, I quickly mastered the art of gravy making! If homemade gravy has eluded you, don’t give up. I have a super easy technique to share with you.

Today I’m collaborating with Nikki from the blog Carry GraceΒ to bring you not one, but two techniques for making gravy! Be sure and click over to her post to discover her secrets (plus, she has a lovely Southern accent. I could listen to her talk all day.).

Here’s my very first cooking videoΒ – my technique for rich, flavorful gravy!

My menu for this meal was Roast Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Garlic Green Beans and Ten Minute Rolls with Homemade Strawberry Jam!

  1. Great video! That’s how I learned to make gravy, too. So much tastier than the jarred stuff, and it’s just about free!


  2. This looks great! I usually use corn starch but I’m going to try your mason jar flour method as it looks like it turns out better than my gravy usually does. I love all your videos, thanks for posting them!


      1. We use Crisco…melt it in a hot iron skillet, then while it is melting, my granddad put in the salt and the pepper. It really makes a difference in taste. Once the Crisco has melted add the flour and stir until the flour is cooked, then add milk. I do not add sausage to mine as I like it plain with the meat on the side. I think it is a southern delicacy. Altho my Savannah bred husband had never had it til he moved to north Georgia.
