Gravy recipe tips
Adding soy sauce to gravy will darken the colour and add a salty flavour.
Skim fat with ice cubes
To skim extra fat from your gravy, use ice cubes.
Add them to your saucepan. The fat will stick to them and make it easy to scoop out.
Ben also detailed his “perfect” roast potatoes recipe, too.
He discussed the best potatoes to use, and the best fat to roast them in with Express.co.uk.
“Perfect roasties rely on tasty fat and potato variety,” he told readers.
“We roast King Edwards in plenty of duck fat for great-tasting, crispy potatoes.”
