4 tablespoons ham, sausage or bacon drippings
1 heaping tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 cups milk or 1 cup evaporated milk mixed with 1 cup water
Brown flour in drippings, stirring constantly so as not to scorch.
Add salt and lots of pepper while browning. When flour paste is real brown, add milk. Turn heat to low, stirring constantly. Cook until gravy is slightly thick, or to suit your taste.
Serve with biscuits.
