One of the best comfort foods on the planet, gravy is only as good as the liquid stock used to make it. Canned stock is okay, but nothing beats homemade. Gravy, made from flour and oil, butter, rendered fat, etc., and a stock, can be tricky for new cooks, as it is prone to creating lumps, and other problems.
