The more I learn to cook, the more I like knowing about ways to create store-bought items at home. Now I can add Kitchen Bouquet to the list. I used this recipe and stored it in a glass jar, ready for gravy-making!
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups water
Put brown sugar in a pan on a slow fire and let it burn or parch, slowly stirring all the time.
When it turns a dark brown, add water and stir well, and then bottle. Use a few drops at a time to color and thicken gravies and soups.
