homemade maple jalapeño gravy

Now that you know how to make your own Homemade Bacon Apple Stuffing, you can now pair that with some sweet and spicy homemade gravy.

I’m talking about homemade maple jalapeño gravy! Two flavor combinations that should be used together way more often because it is just that good.

I mentioned to you yesterday that I had never made homemade stuffing, well I had never made homemade gravy from scratch either! You can forever say goodbye to that powder packet that only has one instruction…just add water. In fact, I even kept in the giblets, something I would never have dreamt of doing before.

While that may be quick and easy, you will never taste a gravy quite like this one. Sweet. Spicy. Yum!

homemade maple jalapeño gravy

4 tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup white flour
3 tbsp bacon grease
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
giblets from chicken, or turkey (optional)
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
1/2 jalapeño, diced finely

1. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan on low heat. Whisk in the flour and let it brown.
2. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth and bacon grease. Stir constantly on medium-high heat and bring to a simmer.
3. Now, stir in giblets, maple syrup and jalapeños. Let this simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring often.
4. You can remove the giblets with a spoon afterwards if you would like.
5. Serve, and enjoy!
