The Truth... What is it?


My wife remembers this gravy with joy! Her mother, Lallah Lindler Drafts used this gravy on grits as a breakfast treat to use extra tomato in the summer. Lallah tended to make a gravy for the grits out of whatever meat was being cooked, and this gravy was one option during summertime when bacon was cooked. This can even be used to make a variant of shrimp and grits.

The Recipe:

  1. Meat: for this tomato gravy, use a tablespoon or more of fried bacon drippings (grease).
  2. Cooked fruit contents: using either canned skinned tomatos (about two tomatoes worth) or skinned garden grown or purchased fresh tomatos, mash them up and...
  3. Thickener needed: gradually stir in about a tablespoon of all purpose flour (about same amount of flour as bacon grease) and...
  4. Other: add tablespoon of chopped spring onion (or other) & salt and black pepper to taste.
  5. Cooking: Now, cook the mix of the above down into a gravy in a frying pan until thick like a gravy.
