The Options for Canned Turkey Gravy
Of course ready-to-heat-and-serve canned turkey gravy cannot compare to the original homemade version. The main reason for this is that original turkey gravy is created from the fat dripping of turkey juices which are typically used to sauté flour in. The fragrant paste called the roux is what comprises the base for the delicious turkey gravy.
For canned turkey gravy you do have options such as Homestyle Gravy in Roasted Turkey Flavor by Heinz. At less than two dollars a can this turkey gravy is available from many retail outlets. You can taste the preservatives and chemical although the broth and its flavor comes through very nicely. A good thing about this brand of canned turkey gravy is that it’s not very salty.
The second option is turkey gravy by Kroger which is available at less than a dollar. It tastes only marginally better than the Heinz canned turkey gravy but has more of a vegetable base than poultry flavored gravy. As before the chemical taste comes through and this version is saltier than our first option.
Should you try the Market Roasted Turkey Gravy by Boston you will notice a slightly greasy aftertaste and more of a chicken flavor which makes it closer to the poultry taste that you’re looking for. Even though it’s slightly salty there is no aftertaste of different chemicals in your mouth. This slightly pricey canned turkey gravy is available at more than two dollars a can.
Finally you can try a well roasted version of canned turkey gravy available from Campbell’s who have perfected the art of canning different gravies and soups. If you’re not satisfied with the taste of canned turkey gravy it is recommended that you prepare it fresh the night before to reduce your work load on Thanksgiving Day.
There’s nothing that can compare with freshly prepared turkey gravy. However, if you are in a pinch and really pressed for time or lack the skills to prepare good-quality turkey gravy then you can settle for the canned version.
