    I love the szwartz classic beef gravy sachet, hope im right in thinking its about 5 or 6 syns for the packet, and you would only use half of it at the most. Please dont tell me its more syns than that ( crossing fingers)

    You can still make your gravy with the meat juices just remove the fat before you use it. Put it in the fridge until the fat settles on the top and goes solid and then just scrape it off.
