This Apple Cider Gravy recipe from Julie Turshen's Now and Again cookbook is both savory and tangy. It's a perfect gravy for a special occasion like Thanksgiving or a lazy morning with biscuits and eggs.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
Add onion, garlic, sage, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring often, until everything is softened, about 8 minutes.
Add flour and, stirring often, cook until it turns the color of a milky cup of coffee, about 5 minutes.
Next, while whisking constantly, slowly pour in the stock and the cider.
Bring the mixture to a bowl and then lower heat and simmer, stirring often, until thickened, about 10 minutes.
