    So I roasted a chicken last night and saved the juices going to make gravy tonight to go with the leftovers but is there a way to thicken it without cornflour/gravy granules?
    I have oxo cubes but I don't want to make it too beefy/salty. Might just use a pinch for colour.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue

    Hmmm the only way I know of thickening gravy is cornflour, my mum might know of another way (she's a chef) but she isn't in at the moment but I could ring her at around 5.30 or so if you like.

    I make my own Leek and Potato soup, really thick and creamy and so so nice!!! I'll post a pic next time I make it xx

    You can also use ground arrow root for thickening sauces. It doesn't make them cloudy like corn flour.

    I just added a pinch of oxo and let it simmer for ages thickened up nicely, although I didn't get much of it
    Also put a dollop of garlicky philly in the mash instead of a slosh of milk, mmmm.

    I swear by these ones

    I
    subsitute the dark choc chips for half milk and half white chocolate chunks. Yes, it's a little more work to melt the chocolate rather than have plain cookie dough, but I promise it's worth the extra 5 minutes that takes, plus they look more impressive!

    I actually made these for a friend's birthday, and I gave them 6 massive ones, and still had the same left for me and my housemate. You may need 2 trays to cook them, or cook them in batches because they do spread out a lot.

    (Don't try this recipe if you dont add the melted choc... it comes out bad :P)

    Oo thankyou they look good! I just wanted something which didn't have loads of fancy bits added Thanks for the tip! I'm thinking of making some and wrapping them up, tying them with ribbon and giving them to awkward relatives!
