Cranberry Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

When I was a very young girl my Grandmother would make biscuits then put them in her wood stove oven. While the biscuits were cooking she would make this heavenly gravy with bits of vegetables and meat. The bonus of all that for me was the hoe cake that she would bake on top of the fire plate of the stove and that was mine, it was so good. Although our biscuits and gravy have changed since that time along with our ovens, I still think of my Grandmother and that special cake when making biscuits, along with all the love that went into them. We love the combination of the Cranberry Biscuits and Sausage Gravy and hope you enjoy the recipe.
