Overheard on the Home Cooking Board

"I add a little bit of strong, black morning coffee to my gravy. It adds some depth and a little something smoky to turkey gravy." – sedimental on special ingredients for Thanksgiving gravy

"My two 'secret' ingredients are roasted shallots and soy sauce. Roast a dozen shallots, then purée them and whisk the purée into the gravy. Taste the gravy and add a splash or two of soy sauce as needed. You won't taste the soy at all—all it does is add salt and umami." – TorontoJo on the secret to her Thanksgiving turkey gravy

"I'm quite attached to starting dinner with a purée of fennel soup, finished with a dash of Pernod. Been doing it for many years, every other or every third Thanksgiving. It's just something a little different." – L.Nightshade
