Ingredients

Directions

Place the peas in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Add 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease and the salt. Bring to a simmer and cook the peas until tender, about 1 hour. 

Remove from the heat, drain and set aside.

In a medium cast-iron pan set over medium heat, add the remaining 1 tablespoon bacon grease, the flour and some salt and pepper. Constantly stir the flour until it just starts to turn deep golden brown and resembles peanut butter. Add 2 1/4 cups water, and continue to stir, scraping the browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Continue to stir until thick and bubbly.

Add the cooked peas to the gravy and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 more minutes, then add a little more flour or water if needed to achieve the desired consistency. Add salt to taste and serve over the rice.
