Sage Gravy FAQs
How should I store leftover gravy?
Leftover gravy is easy to store. Just pour any leftovers into a fridge-friendly, air-tight glass container and store it in the fridge for up to 1 week. When you're ready to eat it again, simply reheat the gravy in the microwave or on the stove.
Is this gravy gluten-free?
This gravy isn't necessarily gluten-free, but it can easily be made that way! The ingredient you need to watch out for is the flour. You can substitute brown rice flour or another gluten-free flour for the wheat flour to make this gravy gluten-free.
Here are lots more recipes for simple sauces and such.
- Whisk all ingredients together in a medium pot. Take care to rub the sage between your fingers to break it down into smaller bits, especially if your brand is a little rustic with bigger leaves and stick pieces (If so, pull out those sticks if you can).
- Squeeze the juice out of your lemon wedge completely and discard the rind.
- Bring gravy to near boil over high heat, but just before it boils, immediately turn off the heat and remove the pot to a non-hot burner.
- Stirring continually, taste and season with black or white pepper and salt as desired.
