I made giblet gravy this year (not a fan) but it came out beautifully! Just do the gravy like the video and add the chopped (preboiled til soft) giblets to the gravy at the end and let it simmer for abit. I left the liver out because it has a tendency to make the gravy bitter.

Can you use corn starch instead of flour?

Good rule of thumb mentioned: 1/2 cup of roux plus 4 cups of liquid. This certainly is a good starting point when making gravy.
