From what I understand, tomato gravy was an old standby in the days of depression when food was scarce. Some of these "necessities" turned out to be favorite foods. The first time that I ever ate this gravy was at my best friend's house. This is the way that her mother, Lucy Cutright, made tomato gravy.
