Directions:
Sprinkle salt in the bottom of a heavy skillet and add shortening. Heat until melted. Add flour, stirring and scraping until well-browned. Stir in milk, stirring constantly until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat, add pepper and cook for 1 minute. If gravy is too thick, add a little water. Serve over biscuits, mashed potatoes, rice, country fried steak or whatever you like.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The good flavor comes from browning the flour in the shortening and seasoning it well with salt and pepper. You can also use fat from the drippings of cooked meats such as chicken, chicken fried steak, sausage, etc. If there is not enough fat from drippings, add some shortening to make up the difference.
