Low Country Gravy

Raven Higheagle


The low country is basically considered to be South Carolina and Georgia. In the summer it becomes notoriously hot and humid. Low country gravy is as much as apart of the culture of the low country as biscuits, and fried green tomatoes.
This gravy is great on biscuits, grits and mashed potatoes. I like it on hash browns too!
