Reducing Fat in Gravy

Here’s how I dramatically reduce the amount of fat in my gravy from roasted meat. I boil off most of the liquid until all that’s left are the brown caramelized juices on the bottom of the pan and the fat. After pouring off the fat, I add water, loosen the browned bits, add seasonings and thicken. I’ve made wonderful gravy this way for more than 45 years. Nell B., Stoutsville, Missouri
