Subject: Re: Red eye gravy

The red-eye gravy my mother made in N.C. 30-40 years ago

was made in the skillet with water and what remained after

frying country ham. Put on the table in a small container

and eaten after it was poured over a homemade baking-soda

biscuit. I had always assumed "red-eye" because the gravy

was reddish and full of little round spots of grease.
