Do Ahead Gravy


Serves  6 - 8



2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons flour

1 teaspoon Marmite or Vegemite

1 teaspoon Fruit Jelly, such as Cranberry or Quince

500ml chicken, beef or vegetable stock liquid, choose the stock based on what you are serving with gravy

1 small sprig rosemary

1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste



Place butter in a saucepan set over a medium heat and melt. Sprinkle flour over butter and quickly stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Reduce heat to low and gently cook flour, stirring continuously, for 3-4 minutes, or until flour smells nutty.

Add Marmite and jelly. Slowly pour in liquid stock, stirring continuously, until all the stock has been added. Add rosemary and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove rosemary.

Serve hot. Alternatively, cool and refrigerate to reheat later. When reheating you may need to add a little additional stock or water.
