Gravy Enhancers

Liquid gravy seasonings claim to enhance homemade gravy. We wanted to find out for ourselves.

What You Need To Know

Liquid gravy seasonings claim to enhance homemade gravy. We had our doubts. Still, we rounded up four supermarket brands and added each of them (according to package instructions) to our recipe for turkey gravy. We included one batch of unadulterated gravy, too. Twenty-one tasters participated in this blind tasting. Our unenhanced turkey gravy, seasoned only with salt and pepper, was the clear winner. Our tasters found the bottled seasonings too sweet, and some had odd and/or off flavors. Based on our results, we’ll skip the enhancers.
