No Christmas dinner is complete without a rich, thick gravy sauce. This version infuses sweet sherry and fruity redcurrants, making your meal extra special.

  1. Once theturkey is cooked, tip the juices and fat from the roasting tin into a bowl. Once settled, spoon 2-3 tbsp of the fat back into the tin (discard any remaining fat and return the juices to the roasting tin). 
  2. Put the tin on the hob over a medium heat. Stir in the flour with a wooden spoon, scraping up all the sticky bits from the bottom. Add the sherry, simmer for 1 min, then stir in the jelly and thyme. Add the stock and season; simmer until reduced.
