Easy red wine gravy



  • 200ml red wine (we used Merlot)
  • 3 tbsp cornflour
  • 600ml turkey or chicken stock, made with cubes or freshly made
  • 2 tbsp redcurrant jelly
  • 200ml/7fl oz turkey juices, skimmed of all fat (make up with stock if you don’t have enough)


  • Mix 3 tbsp red wine with the cornflour until smooth, then mix in all the wine. Heat stock in a pan, then pour in the red wine mixture and redcurrant jelly, stirring until thickened. Cover the surface with cling film to stop a skin forming. Chill for up to 2 days. To serve, reheat in a pan until bubbling, then stir in the turkey juices and transfer to a warm gravy boat.


  • Making ahead
  • This gravy can be made a few days ahead, so all you need to do to serve is heat it up in a pan, then add the turkey juices from the roasting tray for that extra depth of flavour.
