    Hi, thank you, worth knowing, haven't thought of checking the values on these but not too damaging :)

    I will be using celeriac instead of potatoes, with steamed brusell sprouts, edamame beans instead of peas; and carrots.

    Enjoy your roast!

    That's worth knowing. My OXO granules turn out to be roughly 70gms/100gms. Four teaspoons make 1/2 pt and weighs 24 gms therefore about 17gms per 1/2 pint. Just as well I only use a little bit of gravy. LOL Does it taste OK?

    I opened the packet to have a taste and it's delicious. It's a perfect Bisto gravy.

    However, I like mine to taste like the South of France so I would add a bit of thyme, lavender, bay leaf, rosemary and a bit of salt and pepper.

    Enjoy!

    I do not know what Paris tastes of, but having read this on BBC website, France is still off of my places to visit.

    Looks quite convenient. And better than looking at a wall while you go.
