Poultry Gravy

Serves 8
½ Cup Per Serving

Ingredients:

½ teaspoon canola oil
1 ¼ cups (4 oz) ¾ inch diced onion
1 cups (4 oz) ¾ inch diced celery
1½ lbs chicken wings
4 cups water
¾ teaspoon poultry seasoning
¼ teaspoon sage
¼ teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon
¼ cup cornstarch
½ cup water

Directions:

In a heavy bottom pot, add vegetable oil, onions and celery and cook over medium heat until onions are translucent. Add chicken wings, water, poultry seasoning and sage. Simmer for 1 ½ hours. Strain and save the liquid. Refrigerate over night. Remove from the refrigerator, scrape any solidified fat off the top and heat the liquid to a boil. Add white pepper and bouillon. Mix cornstarch and water into a slurry. Slowly whisk the slurry into the simmering liquid. It will thicken very quickly and keep stirring until you have reached your desired thickness. Remove from the heat and serve.
