Doesn’t it just scream Fall to you? Mushrooms and plums together. In a rich and satisfying gravy. Imagine this with fluffy mashed potatoes…just heaven! At first, I wanted to makethis gravy smooth. But when I saw how beautifully chunky it was, I justcouldn’t bring myself to blend it. Of course, you can always do that to make itsmoother or to get your kid to eat some mushrooms. The dried plums really give a rich andkind of smoky flavor and texture here.
