Gravy Recipe

Commercial gravy can taste great, but it often contains some rather questionable ingredients. Luckily, it’s very easy to make delicious, wholesome homemade gravy. The following recipe is a slightly helathified version of Ina Garten’s recipe for homemade gravy. This is a chunky gravy that contains gently cooked, flavorful onions. If you prefer a smooth gravy, strain it before serving, but be aware that you will lose some of the flavor when discarding the onions.
