A Great Memory!! My grandmother could not make smooth gravy to save her life,(she admitted it)so she just made "lumpy dick" after my uncle Richard. It was lumpy gravy with a funny name. My father grew up eating it so when he married my mother (who made very smooth & creamy gravy) He would get mad at mom for not knowing how to make gravy "right." Now every time I see gravy anywhere I think of My Mom, Dad & my Grandma. LOL .. :)

Have you ever tried Potato Starch ? Use it all the time because it doesn't change the color of the dish you are preparing like corn starch does.

Great tips to have in a pinch! My Dad is a gravy connoisseur...he prefers cornstarch and I prefer a roux, which is better tasting I wonder?

Yes I like making a roux as well. Over the years I have gotten very good at gravies but when I first started cooking lumpy gravy would be considered my good gravy. So these tips are great to have on hand.

I'm a big fan of making a roux because of problems with lumpy gravy in the past. I really liked the idea about using your immersion blender too. Great tips!
