DEPRESSION ERA GRAVY FOR BISCUITS OR POTATOES
Heat in fry pan:
1/4 c. fat
4 T. flour
Brown on slow heat until golden. Gradually stir in 2 c. cold milk or water and cook a few minutes more. Season to taste.
Leftover pork or pork sausage add for variation is excellent.
Fried hamburger, drained and added to the above gravy and served with any kind of potatoes, mashed, boiled or baked, makes a good meal.
Fresh side pork probably made the best gravy using fat from the fried side pork. Large families relied on this for a good tasty food.
