save the potato water....


I notoriously drain my potatoes right into the sink and the water goes down the drain instead of saving it for the gravy.

But tonight, I remembered to save the potato water.

I am very pleased with myself.

So, how did the gravy turn out? Is it actually any better with potato water?!?

As a matter of fact - my gravy was quite good. It thickened nicely - no lumps... I think the starch from the potatos remains in the water...

I have gravy issues.. this was the first time that I confidently presented the gravy at the table.

that's funny. my mom used to do (still does) the same thing. I never remember. a naturaly gravy thickener.
