Directions:
Directions:
Take the unwanted chicken or turkey parts to include the inside package, neck, heart, giblets, etc. and boil them with cut up onions and celery to make the gravy stock. Grammy would add salt and pepper to taste and boil it for an hour or so.
Use the stock to supplement the liquid from the vegetables to make enough gravy.
Still the flour and water mixture in a cup making sure there are no lumps

Scrape the meat stuck to the bottom of the roasting pan after you take the meat out to sit. Keep draining the drippings and pour them into the gravy until you cut the meat.

I use a black iron frying pan to make her gravy, she used the roasting pan. Start to heat on a low heat the meat drippings and then slowly pour in the flour and water stirring constantly until it starts to thicken.

Pour in the water from the vegetables using corn, broccoli, potatoes, green beans, etc. water. Do not use asparagus water as it is too strong.

Pour the vegetable water into the mixture as needed to make enough gravy for your meal. I would use 2 to 3 cups of vegetable water while pouring in the flour mixture simmering on a low flame.
