Jamie Oliver's Christmas Turkey Gravy...John's Style..

I'm busy finishing off stuff (making more mess) and hubby?? Shhh! He's in the kitchen.. banging away...I thought he was mending a cupboard door or something, but no. He's in the kitchen making gravy for Christmas Day. Should I say that again? Yep, I'm here, typing this and Hubby John, is busy in the Kitchen making gravy for Christmas Day.
"Come and look at this!" he says, "before it goes in the oven."
"Oh!" says me, "is that tomorrows dinner?"
"No, it's Christmas Day's Gravy...I've been bashing the chicken wings to get the flavour out. It's got everything in it...celery, carrots, onions, fresh bay leaves, rosemary, star anise-"
"Star knees?" I say (I have no idea what that is)
"Oh, yes...you have to have star anise for the flavour. Bacon," he continues, "Olive oil, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plain flour and cranberry sauce of course for finishing plus sherry or port..." (the recipe says 'optional' but if there's any alcohol in a recipe that John's following you can be sure it always goes in, plus the cook gets to sample some too!
So if you want to see what John's Gravy (hopefully) will look like on Christmas Day.... Here's the link to **Jamie's Get Ahead Gravy Recipe from Channel 4
I had to take a picture... well wouldn't you! Bless Him!

  6. Hi Lyn it sounds as though that gravy will knock you out, but it certainly sounds yummy, watch for the hang over though.
