Nealon slashing himself with Crystal Gravy was wonderful.

Here's a link to the Cyrstal Gravy vid for those outside the US: http://videosift.com/video/Crystal-Gravy-Now-you-can-finally-see-your - food

Maybe, eventually, those morons at {insert US TV network} will figure out why everyone outside the US downloads everything. Morons.

3 commercials for franco-american gravy and 1 from SNL as a parody of the crystal craze? Yeah, sure, ALL gravy ads make gravy look like sludge.

God tier: Sausage gravy, aka "Country" gravy.

Go ahead...try to take a picture of it and not have it look like somebody jizzed on your biscuits. You can't do it. You just can't.

You sound communist or something. No self-respecting individual would ever measure gravy in the metric system.

The Guy who wrote that owes Farker Lilieks a check-and an apology Lilieks' "gallery of regrettable food" is the single funniest thing on the internet, I have literally injured myself from laughing so hard while I read it.

Coincidentally, my sis-in-law just emailed me for my gravy recipe. I've always gotten compliments on it, so here it is for any Farkers who might need it:

For the gravy:
EQUIPMENT:
whisk
2 saucepans
large skillet
rubber or silicone squeegee
strainer
gravy separator

INGREDIENTS
garlic powder
onion powder
poultry seasoning
celery flakes
black pepper
chicken stock 32oz (I like Swanson's, if I don't have any home-made on hand)
flour
Gravy Master

In a saucepan, reduce the chicken stock by half. Allow it to cool down - this can be done while the bird is still cooking.
After the turkey is done cooking, remove it to a cutting board to rest. Put the roasting pan on the stove under low heat and add a little water. Using a rubber squeegee or pot scraper, loosen up the drippings in the pan. Keep doing this until you have freed as much of the drippings as possible, then pour it all into a large skillet over medium heat. Scrape the roasting pan out well; all little pieces of skin and other bits all contribute to the taste. Add one good shake each of the garlic & onion powders, a good pinch of the poultry seasoning, a teaspoon of celery flakes, and black pepper to taste. Try to add any liquids that have drained from the turkey onto the cutting board into the skillet. Keep this cooking, stirring occasionally and adding water to keep from burning, until all the white fat chunks start to turn brown.
Using the strainer, pour the contents of the skillet into the gravy separator. After the fat rises to the top, pour the defatted part into the second saucepan, and set it over medium heat.
Add half the reduced stock from the first step. Add two rounded tablespoons of flour to the remaining stock, and whisk until smooth (if you have a stick blender, this works best.) Add this to the gravy and whisk it. Reduce heat to low.
Cook for 5 minutes to cook the flour. Add Gravy Master, if necessary, to get the preferred color. Salt to taste.

This was for a rather small (10#) bird; adjust up accordingly.

Nothing. It's the article that's regrettable.

Great book, worth it even if you've read the web version since much of the "food" in it isn't on the website.

My grandfather called gravy "Arkansas mayonnaise". It was served with every dinner I ever ate as a boy.

Canned or jarred gravy is an abomination on par with turkey bacon.

How hard is it to make real gravy? Flour and fat and heat and practice. What the fuc.

What exactly did they use as the prop for crystal gravy? It had to be some kind of food product, since they ate it. Was it some extremely dense sugar syrup?

At a guess I'd say Karo syrup. But could be other things.
