|Fried Country Ham|
2 small or 1 large slice country cured ham
1 tablespoon of lard or ham fat
1 tablespoon of flour
1/2 cup of water or strong coffee
Soak the ham slices in cold water for about 3 hours to remove the excess salt. Drain, and dry with paper towels. Melt the lard or ham fat in a heavy skillet and let it get very hot. Add the ham slices (cut into serving pieces if necessary to fit into the skillet), lower the heat, and fry the ham slowly for about 15 minutes, turning frequently. Serve with Red gravy.
To make red gravy, stir the flour into the drippings in the skillet, add the water or coffee and cook until gravy thickens. Pour the gravy over the ham or serve it on Hominy grits. Serves 4

Hey Soul food recipes, I'm Marlon, I am from Williamsburg, Va. I came to your site to get recipes, and ended up looking at the ad you had for diabetic supplies. Wow! Guess I should say, that I make too much to get assistance and I don't have any medical at work. So I checked out the diabetes store you suggested, and dude, just want to say thanks alot,. My money is tight but you saved me a bunch of money. I promise you that my next doctor visit I will tell everyone in the waiting room to visit your site. Can you keep the link up for a few more weeks? Thanks Marlon in Williamsburg,
Cool, I love the diabetic recipes that you offer, I've been to a few other sites, that call themselves recipe collections, but they don't offer food exchanges, and in fact look pretty generic. As a newly diagnosed diabetic, I find your site and information, very informative. Margaret in Charlotte, NC.
