Gravy in a jar

My boyfriend's parents keep gravy in a jar on their mantle. The gravy appears to be the kind poured over biscuits and is probably made of sausages. This really disturbs me, but since my bf grew up with it, he doesn't think anything of it.

Would this disturb anyone else? Or am I making too much of it?

Oh, dear. It's graxy, OP.

Even the word "gravy" is common (decent people might use a "sauce".) It's like an adult --or anyone over the age of, say, four-- referring to their "MeMaw" and "PaPaw."

But to elevate the stuff to the place of garniture? I think not.

A friend's stern grandmother (not MeMaw), had a hierarchy of low things. In ascending order of awfulness:

1) jakey

2.) green

3.) common

4.) dirt common

5.) dirt couldn't be

"Gravy" in a jar on a mantel is "dirt couldn't be."

On the mantle?! WTF?!? Yea, it's disturbing. What's their reasoning?

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 307/06/2013

Ok. Just got it. This in reference to the baby in a jar on the mantle post. I'm a little slow, at times.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 407/06/2013

That's so clever. W&W for OP!

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 507/06/2013

Those are not sausages! Those are the earthly remains of Uncle Pete!

My mom used jarred gravy, but she kept it in the pantry closet!

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 707/06/2013

They weren't sure what to do with it because NOBODY puts gravy in the corner!

Is this the Size 36 Waist thread?

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 1007/06/2013

and do you order gifts from a sears catalogue papa got from sellin a hawg?

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 1107/09/2013

Now, wait a second! You doctors have been telling us to drink eight glasses of gravy a day!

"My boyfriend's parents keep gravy in a jar on their mantle."

On the mantel? Are you sure it wasn't the cremated remains of a rotund relative?

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 1307/09/2013

I don't get it.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 1407/09/2013

OP, it is merely the newest method in cooking meth. Do not be alarmed.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 1507/09/2013

Something like that has to be refrigerated, right?

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 1607/09/2013

I don't get it either. Does this refer to another DL thread?

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 1707/09/2013

Usually gravy in a jar is the result when fusion in a jar experiment fails.

Do you go up into the man?

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 1907/10/2013

I didn't know trailers had mantles. Single or double wide?

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2007/10/2013

Mary Schmucker brought jars of gravy from Punxsy to Sarasota. With a name like hers, it has to be good.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2107/10/2013

Sauce contains meat. Gravy doesn't.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2207/10/2013

You're pretty fucking stupid, Mary Ann.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2307/11/2013

R14/R15/R18 is a silly little mess - but watch her. She's sex-aversive and rather nasty as she tries to figure out how to be funny.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2407/11/2013

Have never seen graxy in jar, not that I've ever sought such a thing. Is it another Southern Tradition that should die?

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2507/11/2013

R25, Southerners make their own gravy sauce from recipes passed down in their family.

They would never EVER purchase jarred sauce.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2607/11/2013

Yuck

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2707/11/2013

Bacon grease + flour + water + salt + pepper

Some special recipe, 26.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2807/11/2013

Just googled southern gravy, r25. And you're right. They seem so proud of this substance. Didn't even know what it is.

But from whom and where would it be sold in jars? Sounds gross.

Am chemorexic and will puke it up anyway, but am really bored. Going to have biscuits and graxy for the first time! Thanks for the thread, OP.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 2907/11/2013

r22 Just the reverse.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 3007/12/2013

r30, maybe it's the reverse in your Olive Garden Brooklyn family. Maryann and Lidia Bastianich and other professional Italian chefs disagree.

by Graxy Cak-Almiquireply 3107/12/2013

r30 Marinara SAUCE Bernaise SAUCE Bechamel SAUCE ALL are sauces, and never referred to as gravy. Gravy is meat-derived.
