Dry Mixes in a Jar... Country Pepper Gravy Mix



Dry Mixes... these mixes are not for canning, but may be stored in canning jars.

Country Pepper Gravy Mix

Found on thehensnest.blogspot

5 cups all-purpose flour 

2 cups powdered milk 

1/8-1/4 cup of both salt and course black pepper 

1/2 cup cornstarch 

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and stir well. Put in an airtight container to store. To Make the Gravy:. Take a couple Tbsp. of bacon drippings and heat in a pan over medium heat. Take 3-4 heaping Tbls. of mix and sprinkle over the bacon grease. Using a fork or a whisk, consistently blend the mixture with the bacon grease until the well incorporated and there are NO LUMPS. Add 1-1/2 cup milk and whisk well.

Cook until thickened. Scraping the bottom of the pan often so not to scorch your gravy. If your gravy does scorch, toss out and start over. Nothing worse than burnt gravy! It will be rich and creamy using milk but water will work fine to as there is powdered milk in the mix. Additional salt & pepper to taste. 

Suggestion~cut the recipe down considerably and make a test batch. Try out the gravy to make sure you like it before you make a large batch.
