I love them, except for the Neck! Never really knew if I cooked them right or not. I bring a pan of water to a boil and add the Giblets with some S&P, reduce to a simmer and cook for about 40 minutes. Does that sound right.

Any other suggestions for cooking them or any secret gravy recipes out there you want to share?

That's about what my wife did last night. My neices were a bit freaked out when they thought that's what were going to eat.

My Mom usually makes sambal out of chicken giblets.
She cookes them first,grind the down in a food processor and then put them in a frying pan mixed with spices.

I usually add in some veggies (carrot, onion, celery), fresh herbs, S&P and make stock that I use for the gravy later.

The neck is the best part!

We encorporate the gibblets into the stuffing and it makes for great taste, not that flat stuffing taste you get without them..

Our stuffing is made in a baking dish not in the cavity of the bird.

I put them on a skewer then into the smoker with the bird. Gives me something to sample while waiting for the bird to finish.
