Useful tips for Grandma’s Gravy
First, and most importantly, this recipe ought to be made to taste. Nothing needs to be measured perfectly, except for maybe the tapioca starch (also known as tapioca flour).
Most gravy recipes require you slow cook and reduce corn starch to make a paste. We’re skipping that step and letting the Vitamix do the thickening for us.
Keep 25% of the vegetable mixture unblended for a bit of texture.
