Giblets : The edible inner parts of poultry, including the gizzard, heart, liver and kidneys ....... This recipes was devised to use up all the giblets left over from home slaughtered chickens! You can use either giblets or just livers in this recipe. However, the cooking time for giblets is longer than that for livers. Giblets need 15 - 20 minutes, but the livers should be added only 5 - 8 minutes before serving. Have lots of fresh bread and rolls on hand to dip into the sauce!
