Does anybody know how much coffee/water ratio to add for this recipe?

'Bout 1-1/2 Tablespoons of coffee to a cup of water ought to get it for you. Adjust to taste.

I don't know, but if you let me come over I'll taste test it for you!

When I was a kid we would have red eye gravy, biscuits, tenderloin, and eggs/brains for breakfast for several days after butchering hogs. After the tenderloin was gone we'd start in on the sausage. Damn fine eatin! But it probably put a lot of men in early graves.

I can still remember the smell of the hams and ribs hanging in the milk barn with the curing salt. Some things you never forget.

Mike, keep your brains, but I'll rustle up the rest of it for ya. heehee

My grandparents ate like that all the time, eggs, fried, salty food, and lived to be in a ripe old age. My granddad also chewed tobacco. I believe it's not so much lifestyle, as it is good ol' fashioned hard work and good clean livin. To heck with cholesterol levels...If it's my time to go, it's my time to go.
