Gravies, Sauses, Salsas Oh My!
So I was just watching a show called "Mom's Cooking," and they were making Grandma's meatballs and gravy. However the "gravy" was made with a large can of diced tomatoes, garlic, oiive oil, basil, sugar & water. They never added any meat drippings or incorporated any meat into the gravy. They poured the sauce over the meatballs. To me that's a sauce and not a gravy. I always thought gravies incorporated some meat component. As I looked further into this (yes, a quick Google search!) , there doesn't seem to be a lot definitive lines anymore between gravies & sauces. Add salsa and chutneys to the mix and it gets even more confusing!
So give me your definitions of sauces, gravies, salsas and chutneys. Have a favorite recipe to share? Lets see that too!
