The very first Bisto product, in 1908, was a meat-flavoured gravy powder, which rapidly became a bestseller in the UK. It was added to gravies to give a richer taste and aroma. It was named "Bisto" because it "Browns, Seasons and Thickens in One." Bisto Granules were introduced in 1979. The granules dissolve in hot water to form a gravy substitute.
So Easy... For 4-6 servings put 4 heaped dessert spoons in a measuring jug and add boiling water up to the 250ml mark. Stir until it thickens - and that's it. For a richer, creamier sauce use 250ml of boiling milk instead of water.
