Cider Gravy (for Pork)

While this recipe is for cider gravy, this is the basic recipe for making any gravy. It is so much nicer than ready-made! Simply change the stock depending on what joint you’re cooking.

If you want to add your accompanying vegetable cooking water to your gravy, replace some or all of the stock with the water. The gravy will have a less meaty flavour, but you’ll have all the nutrients from the vegetables instead. For a less boozy gravy, use all the stock or replace the cider with unsweetened fresh apple juice.
