Making Gravy Ahead of Time

kwe730 | Nov 15, 2006 04:16 PM

I'm a pretty experienced cook and have been doing Thanksgiving dinners for our family for a number of years. Everything flows along pretty well until it comes time to make gravy. I'm fine when making it for a small group, but there's something about the vibe in my kitchen on Thanksgiving Day that makes me nutty and I feel like I totally forget how to do it. May have something to do with my Mom and Mother-in-Law hovering even though they are both dear people. Anyway, I came across a recipe of Ina Garten's that they use at Barefoot Contessa for making gravy ahead of time. She suggests using chicken broth and you can always add some pan juices to the made in advance stuff. Anyone have any experience with this recipe or doing anything like it? I'd hate for it to fail.
