    steve in FL's Note:

    I got this tip many years ago from my friend Anni and I use it every year now for my Thanksgiving turkey gravy. My kids say my gravy is the best there is, but I have Anni to thank for that..

    1. 1
      For each cup of turkey gravy, you add a teaspoon of cider vinegar. LOL, that's it. It does not lend an acidy-taste at all, but brightens the flavor I think.
    2. 2
      Trust me on this. You can do a before/after taste test, especially if you're like most of us and have MORE than 1 cup of gravy to serve - just try this with one cup gravy as the tester - if you don't believe it is mightier tasting, then its Anni's fault, not mine. LOL. no, just kidding. But seriously, this is awesome, and this will be your new thing forever.

      I'm a little late in writing my review; I tried this for Thanksgiving. I do believe the apple cider acted as a subtle flavor enhancer and improved the flavor of the gravy.

      This one is tricky to review--it's hard to compare sips out of two different cups of HOT liquid. But, like slickchick and steve, I think I detected a more robust difference too! I thought, "Aw heck, apple cider vinegar is a cure-all tonic for everything," and added the tester cup and more cider vinegar back into the remaining gravy. We loved it and I think we're healthier now too!

      It does add more flavor and body to the gravy. I tried it with pork roast gravy and it was delicious.
      In an old 1800's cookbook there was mention of using vinegar in gravy but I had forgotten about it.
      Unfortunately, the cookbook and other antiques was burned in a fire in an outbuilding. I can't verify this use then. Thanks for posting.
