 Biscuits & Gravy
 
 4 Tbsp	          flour
 3/4 cup           water
 2 cups            skim milk or milk substitute
 1 1/2 tsp         fresh sage, crumbled finely
            or
 1 tsp             ground sage
 1/8 tsp           cayenne pepper
 1/2 tsp           tobasco sauce
 1/4 tsp           salt
 1/2 tsp           fresh ground black pepper
 
 
 Mix flour and water until smooth and no lumps. Put into medium sauce
 pan, and heat over medium-high heat until the mixture boils. Reduce
 heat, stirring constanly, and boil for 4 - 5 minutes. Mixture should
 be very think and blubbery. Add milk and stir until the mixture is
 smooth again. Add spices, and return to boil, cooking until it has the
 consistancy of thick gravy.
 
 Serve over split baking powder biscuits, with fruit (whole-berry
 cranberry sauce was *great* with this dish!), grits, red beans & rice,
 toast & jam, etc.
 
 Makes enough for about 4 biscuits.
