I have searched the internet and can't find ANY conversion chart that tells me how much 6/25 of a cup of flour is. Like Joanne12 guess I'll try 1/4 cup. It is dumb to post something that doesn't even exist and I assume if it did exist, it would be SOMEWHERE on the internet.

Ummm 6/25 ths of a cup flour? (that's not a standard dry measure) How about just saying approx. 1/4 cup flour.....?

I've been making this Sawmill Gravy for years now. Love it!! I only make a few changes to cut down on the artery-clogging aspect. For a great gravy use a equal fat ratio to flour, example 2 Tbsp. fat to 2 Tbsp flour, cook at least on minute to cook off flour taste, add 1 cup milk. Stir and cook till thick. Easy and so good. Thank you for sharing this free copycat recipe.
