“This recipe I got from my Grammy. My family loved her ham gravy. My family thinks this taste great. As noted below my Grammy said to remove any lumps that might form while making this gravy. My Grammy always called the lumps "Lumps Of Love".”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34-1 cup ham dripping
  • 3 -4 tablespoons flour
  • cold water
  • 18-14 teaspoon salt
  • 1 -2 drop Gravy Master (to color gravy if needed)


  1. Bring ham drippings to a boil.
  2. Mix flour and water to make a runny paste.
  3. Pour flour/water mix in boiling ham drippings a little at a time making sure to be whisking the same time. Whisk until thickened.
  4. Add salt and gravy master to taste and color.
  5. Note: To make a good amount of drippings add 1/2 cup water to the pan the ham is being cooked inches Start with 1-2 drops gravy master then add more if needed as this is very dark in color. If the gravy has lumpy strain in a strainer to remove the lumps.
