Gravy Disasters

Yup almost had one those dreaded gravy disasters today.  Thank God for immersion blenders!  Just as I was ready to add my liquid to make some gravy, I had to take a call.  I did take the pan off the heat. But by the time I got back there were little boulders of roux and chicken base looking up at me!  So I did the only thing I could.  I heated the milk for the gravy, and got my immersion blender out.  Once the liquid was in the pan and I could see that the whisk was not going to break those boulders up,  I grabbed the immersion blender.,  in a few minutes the gravy was smooth and thick.  Another culinary rescue!!

If you do not have an immersion blender, get one. they are VERY handy for a variety of tasks, including saving the gray.  Be sure to read the instructions and do not turn on the blender until it is in the liquid.  Or you may get a bath.
