SALT PORK GRAVY old farm recipe

Nancy J. Patrykus


A J.A.P. friend, Roxie P. requested this "Salt Pork Gravy" recipe. After enjoying my "Creamed Tuna Pea Wiggle" recipe.
This gravy was a staple breakfast on the Curl family Indiana farm.
They raised hogs, and did the're own butchering.
Grandpa always save the special parts when butchering to make "MOUNTAIN OYSTERS' !!
This gravy goes on top of potatoes, toast and Homemade Baking Powder biscuits!!..YUM!!
