I cant find my strainer/sieve I am making a roast chicken with pan gravy

I take the juices in the pan, add celery, onion, carrot, garlic, cook it down in the fat add stock and reduce. Then I strain. I can't find a strainer, no time to buy one. What do you suggest. I also have no cheese cloth.

  1. Use your colander or a slotted spoon.

    1. Alternatively, remove any peppercorns/bay leaves (if you're using them), and blend it in the blender to a smooth consistency.

      1. Any thin piece of clean cloth that you can pour a liquid through should do.

        1. thanks for all the suggestions. I am going to do a little of all.
