Making gravy on an induction hob.

I have just been looking at the new term of the Cookery School and the gravy videos. I have been waiting for the new term to start as I enjoyed the last two so much.

However I have an induction hob and so cannot put a roasting tin on it to heat up as they are either made of alsil (aluminium alloy) as in the Delia bakeware or hard anodised and so are not ferrous based. None of my roasting tins work on the hob.

So I was wondering how you would make gravy as per Delia or even heat fat etc for roasties either.

Thank you

Hello Hol,

I expect that roasting tins that are suitable for an induction hob are quite pricy.

If you don’t want to splash out, for roast potatoes I would use the oven to heat the fat in the pan.

For gravy I would spoon off the fat and put a couple of tablespoons of it into one of your induction saucepans. Then I would add some wine or stock to the roasting pan and pop it back into the oven so you can loosen and release all the lovely pan juices from the base of the pan with the help of a wooden spoon once they have softened. Then add your flour to the fat followed by the pan juices (gradually) and some extra stock if needed to make your gravy.

I hope that helps.

Best wishes

Lindsey
