From a sumptuous blanket to cover potatoes or an addition of moisture to meats, gravy accentuates your meals lending both texture and flavor. If the end of the meal results in a surplus of gravy, it doesn’t have to go to waste. Freezing leftover gravy is a safe way to preserve it until the next meal calls for it. With minimal time invested now, future meal prep can be a breeze.

Step 1

Set the container of gravy into an ice bath or into the refrigerator. Allow the gravy to cool for at least 15 minutes.

Step 2

Pour the gravy into a rigid, sealable airtight container leaving at least an inch of space at the top.

Step 3

Secure the lid tightly and mark the current date on the container.

Step 4

Place the container into the freezer in a safe place where it will not get knocked over.
