I love gravy. It often is the real reason I cook other dishes. Stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey - all vehicles for gravy!
The Thanksgiving gravy closest to my heart is giblet gravy. My mother always made this prior to the turkey coming out of the oven. The gravy was filled with the giblets from many birds. Diced hard boiled eggs were included too.
Unfortunately, I have found few people outside of my family share a love for this style gravy.
These days I generally make a drippings based standard gravy for "the day" and make my giblet gravy the next day for leftovers.
Whats in your gravy? Please share your tips and stories and traditions!
