Candied Cherry Gravy

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 35 mins


  • 4 oz candied cherries
  • 1 tsp candied orange peel
  • 1 tbsp candied ginger
  • 2 cups chicken bone broth or stock
  • 1 tsp arrowroot starch or corn starch
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Take the cherries, place them in a food processor and pulse to rough chop into smaller pieces. Rough chop the gingerĀ  (you'll be removing it later so you don't want small chunks).
  • In a small pot add 2 cups of chicken bone broth, cherries, orange, and ginger.
  • Bring to a boil on medium-high heat, then reduce to medium-low heat to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring regularly to prevent burning.
  • Once the gravy has reduced and thickened, remove the ginger chunks and add 1 teaspoon of starch of choice (I use arrowroot) and whisk quickly to thicken.
  • Then stir in salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the heat and let cool for about 5 minutes before serving.


You can use vegetable stock in place of chicken stock to make the sauce vegan.
