Deer Camp Gravy

3 or 4 Tbsp. bacon drippings or lard

4 or 5 Tbsp. flour

1 12-oz can evaporated milk, plus 1/2 can water

Salt and pepper to taste

Heat the drippings in a heavy cast iron skillet over the fire. Stir in the flour and cook until browned nicely. Add milk and water; cook, stirring with a spatula, constantly or until thickened to suit. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve right now!

You take about four Buttermilk Biscuits; tear ‘em up just right. Then slather some of this "redneck sauce" over ‘em, and son you have pure "Manna" from heaven! I’d be willing to bet that this is what the Lord fed the Israelites on those 40 years they wandered in the wilderness. That’s why they were so healthy! The Lord fed ‘em on Biscuits and Gravy!
