My new way of making gravy is in the blender. I roast my chicken with carrots, celery, and onion in the pan. While the bird is roast, I simmer the gizzards with some water to make a stock. I take all the drippings (skim off the fat) and some of the veggies and just whiz it up in the blender with the stock. It makes a really delicious gravy. If I was trying to make a lot of gravy for Thanksgiving, I would some some canned stock too.
