Method : 
  • Slowly melt your butter in a deep bottomed pan, do not burn it by melting it too fast.
  • While your butter is melting, crumble up the stock cubes into a suitable bowl and add the pepper, brown sugar and Sage.
  • Make up 550 ml of stock by pouring boiling water into the stock cubes and mix it together with a fork.
  • When the butter is fully melted add the chopped garlic & flour to the pan and mix it together with a whisk.
  • Let the mixture (Roux) cook on a very low heat for a few minutes so that the butter slowly starts to brown and you get a light brown roux. 
  • It is important not to burn the roux as the gravy will not thicken, so just give it a minute or two to slightly change colour. 
  • When the colour of the roux has changed to light brown add the stock, whisking all of the time.
  • ** Be careful when adding the stock as it will be hotter than the sun and will probably splash **
  • Bring this to a rolling boil and let it simmer for a further 5 minutes to allow the flavour to infuse into the gravy.
  • You should be left with a rich, light brown chicken gravy.
  • If the chicken gravy it is a little too thick for your liking you can always add a splash more boiling water, up to 100 ml should make it quite a bit thinner.
