How to save your salty gravy and make a gluten free modification November 25, 2010

Posted by Melonie Gallegos in Dishing It.

Happy Thanksgiving gluten free friends. It’s a dangerous holiday for eating on our diet especially if you are also lactose intolerant. Ugh! I am making an alternate version of our family turkey gravy recipe with my Oma today and I added salt without tasting. Hello chef 101! She uses bacon on the turkey to keep it moist, then we use the turkey drippings to make gravy. That’s all I’ll share about our secret family recipe but I will tell you the gluten free substitute to flour: corn starch. It comes out beautiful and shiny. My other secret, when you over salt a sauce or soup add raw, peeled potato chunks to it. It completely saves the day by absorbing much of the salt flavor. Control it to taste by adding more potatoes. Remember to take them out well before they cook of mashing.

Remember to taste before you salt friends and do not get yourself sick over dinner. There are subs don’t be shy with the family present 🙂
