Diet Coke Coffee Gravy

DIET COKE COFFEE GRAVY ©

BUBBLING GOODNESS. DIET COKE. COFFEE. GRAVY. HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

Makes 5-3/4 cups


3 c. water

2 c. Berry Cherry Blend (dried cherry, cranberry, blueberry by Traverse Bay Fruit Co.)

1 t. pink Himalayan salt

2 c. fresh brewed robust coffee (I used Zack’s Brews Cowell & Hubbard)

2 T. liquid smoke

3 T. unsweetened cocoa powder (use regular not dark cocoa)

2 t. guar gum powder

2 t. ground coriander

2 t. ground rosemary

2 t. garlic powder

zest and strained juice of 1 tangerine

1 T. light brown sugar

2 t. smoked paprika

1 t. Hatch ground chile

1/2 t. ground allspice


2 T. walnut oil

1 c. fine diced celery

2 c. fine dice yellow onion

1 t. pink salt

fresh grind black pepper

1 c. diet COKE


In large saucepan bring the water, dried berries and salt to boil. Reduce heat and cook 1/2 hour or till fruit is plump and tender.

Add coffee, liquid smoke, powdered cocoa. Stir well.

Add guar gum powder through wire mesh strainer and immediately whisk into top of gravy till thoroughly dissolved and no white spots remain.

Add coriander, rosemary, garlic, tangerine zest and juice, brown sugar, smoked paprika, Hatch ground chile and allspice. Stir and salt and pepper to taste.

Add diet COKE. Stir well, then keep on low heat, stirring occasionally, while you saute the veggies.

In large skillet, over medium-low heat, melt oil.

Add celery, onion and salt, then saute till translucent and brown-tinged. Add to gravy.

Stir well and cook on low heat till all is to your liking.

Bring to room temperature, then pack into covered containers and refrigerate overnight to mature and meld the flavors.


Notes: You can go ahead and saute the veggies while the berries cook in water, just be sure you end up cooking the gravy long enough. You want the gravy to develop rich flavor and texture achievements.

Serve over stuffing or veggie meats.
