Southern Style Gravy

gravy

Gravy is one of those classic holiday recipes that is a staple for your table but everybody also always has their own way of doing it!

gravy

We always kept our gravy pretty simple, and that’s what I have always loved about it…

Giblets, stock, salt, pepper, celery, onion, a can of soup, some flour and a whole lotta time…

giblets

Start with your turkey giblets….

stock

Cover them with stock and then double that amount…

onion

I add the onion first and let it simmer for awhile….

celery-8

Then I throw the celery in! I like to add the celery a bit later…no rhyme or reason to it…my mom always has, so did my grandmother…so that’s how I do it too…
