1FRYING THE HAM
Trim off fat from country ham slices and render in hot skillet. When fat is crisp, remove the pieces and discard leaving the liquid in the skillet.
2With medium heat, lightly brown each side of the country ham, 3-4 minutes per side. Do not overcook as the ham will become tough.
Note: If the ham is too salty for your tastes, pour a cup of water in the skillet as you fry it and it will draw some of the saltiness out.
3Remove ham slices and drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
4MAKING THE GRAVY
Retain 3/4 cup of the grease in the skillet.
5Add the coffee and water and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
6Pour on hot biscuits and enjoy!
