    I have never done this but would like to know how it turned out.
    False

    Yes, my mom always used the potato water for gravy, she usually only used part of the liquid as potato water, One thing she did a lot was use evaporated milk diluted with potato water, made a wonderful gravy, and part milk, part potato water whenever she fixed boiled or mashed potatoes she utilized the potato water this way. Very good tasting and you get the veggie and vitamin benefit from the potato water, I have also saved the potato water if I was going to make bread and used it in place of water called for in the recipe.

    I don't put milk in mine. I just add the flour to the chicken or pork chop grease and thicken then add the potato water and cook till thick as desired. Only if it is a little too thick do I add some milk.

    I used to do this all the time, as it saved using so much milk. I did add milk to the potato water, or powdered milk. You cannot tell that is is made with potato water.

    My Mom always used the potato water, plus any water from the veggies. It adds so much taste to gravy, not to mention you aren't tossing the 'good stuff'. We both keep whatever water we have left, and freeze it for soup or an later gravy.

    I always save the potato water, but I store it up for soup, whether it's pea soup, chicken soup or turkey soup.

    I have never heard of this. I occasionally use the potato water for making bread. It makes the best bread in the world. I'll have to give the gravy a try. :)

    In answer to budsmama, yes you use the grease that you use to cook chicken or porkchops. That is the only two meats that I have used the potato water. Drain off some of the grease and just use according to how much gravy you are making. Most of the time I either added milk to the potato water, or used instant milk if I had it. My family ate a lot of gravy made this way. For sausage gravy, I used regular milk, as I did not cook potatoes then.

    Tippytoes, if you have never tried this, give it a try. You don't have to use as much milk, and it still tastes good.
