I just use water. Put veg and meat in a pot, cover with water and let it simmer.
This year I think I'll do like tish said and add some carrot and a bay leave too. Mom usually does the gravy. I just started playing with it last year.
Mom usually made it chunky and just finely chopped the giblets with a knife. A couple of weeks ago I used a immersion blender in the pot to chop it all up to smooth it. The kids complain about the chunkiness.
