Gobble Goody Giblet Gravy

cathy tate


I am always trying to tweak-improve the turkey gravy every year. This version is approved by my Aunt Judy, who generally only likes bland food but loved this gravy, said it was the best she'd ever tasted! I didn't tell her what was in it!! My family approved and I've been making it ever since. The photo was provided from the Collection of Business Americana.
