Hello Larry,

Sorry, there aren't any homemade versions of this that I can locate. "Kitchen Bouquet" is basically just a browning sauce. It doesn't really add much other than color. There's another one called "Gravy Master". If you can get "caramel coloring", you can use that, too. If there were such a thing as a homemade browning sauce, it would have to use something like caramel coloring for the colorant.

Why not order some of this stuff online? You can order Gravy Master here: Yankee Grocery

You can probably find Kitchen Bouquet online, too.
