Country Ham and Redeye Gravy
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.
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.
Retain 3/4 cup of the grease in the skillet.
