Get Ahead Gravy

Hey, I'm a Gravy Queen, I love Gravy.

I want to share with you a fab Jamie Oliver recipe for get ahead gravy . I make it in advance at Christmas now, its sits in the freezer nice and well behaved. Good for any occasion where you want to prep ahead. I buy turkey crowns now and I found you don't get as many juices as a whole bird for making gravy. So the juices I do get go into the get ahead gravy on the day.

Oh I would add that as personal preference, I leave the star anise out.

This is the recipe and I will share my step by step photos.

Looks lovely, but what part of the turkey is the crown? I don't think American turkeys wear crowns! :)

Is it the breast meat or the white meat on the wings? I think the difficulty in understanding is most likely the term crown. When I looked at the picture, it looked like large wings--though I may be wrong. Either would be great I'm sure.

It's a great idea Gravy Queen to make gravy in advance. Not just chicken gravy, but, beef and pork too. Thanks!

Looks good! Are you planning ahead for Christmas 2012 or Christmas 2013?

Ah sorry to confuse. (I seem to do that a lot !).

The Get Ahead Gravy is made with chicken wings.

I make it to have at Christmas because then I buy a turkey crown which is different. It has no wings or legs on it, its just the breast part.

And yes I'll be making this again for 2013. Its a nice soothing kitchen job for a cold winter day.

Thanks for this GQ! My hubby loves gravy and complains that, since I almost never ever serve gravy with a meal, (except turkey at Xmastime) he feels the plate looks dry.

I will definitely give this a go, with different kinds of meats, and veggies.

btw: what is a 'hob'? (it's in Jamie Oliver's writeup)
