I followed recipe exactly big mistake. The amount of cornstarch was too much making the "gravy" very gelatinous and runny at the same time like a jello soup. Thanks but no thanks I will go a different route next time. Read More

Seemed a little heavy on the corn starch. I am thinking this is the cause of some of the negative comments. I backed it off to 4 tablespoons and was much more like gravy as I know it. Will try 3 tablespoons next time. Also the water quality makes a difference. I now use Reverse Osmosis purified water(I have an RO system). Makes a difference in many dishes. Read More

This was the best giblet gravy I have ever tasted. My family has never consumed my giblet gavy in the past. This one they ate every bit of it and were wishing for more. It made a medium sized bowl full of gravy. I'll double it next year so there will be plenty for my very large family. Read More

After reading reviews I adjusted the cornstarch. So it was not super thick like my grandmother s but it had the wonderful flavor I remember. Read More

I didn't have corn starch at home so I used potato meal. I didn't measure anything but it turned out great! Thanks! Read More
