Top Review by French Tart

Made without the optional salt and made with Marigold Swiss Bouillon Stock Cubes. I knew this was a winner when I looked at the ingredients, and I was not disappointed. A wonderful slightly sweet gravy with a bit of a kick.....we ate it with sticky apple pork chops, which was perfect as a combination. I did add the nutmeg, but might not bother next time, as I felt that the extra flavour was not needed, as the flavours were already rounded and well balanced. Thanks Mike! FT:-)
