Gravy for roast turkey




This superb gravy from the Thermomix included red current jelly also made in the Thermomix (two for the price of one). It is pleasing to see diners coming back for seconds on any dish that is put before them and that happened here. Some people took small portions then realised it was so good and came back for more.
