probably will work, condenced milk is thicker than regular milk......I would use 1/2 the amount of the condensed milk and add water to make up the difference or it will be way too thick.   Try it, that is the only way to find out.....have some water ready to add to it if you need more.  You can always add salt & pepper when you serve it.  To make a rue using this kind of flour, I am pretty sure that it has salt in it...so don't add any more salt to the gravy when you make it.  And if you have any green tomatoes you can make fried green tomatoes with it.

Condensed milk is very thick and very sweet. It (to me)  tastes like ice cream , so I would not use it to make gravy or buttermolk biscuits . Perhaps if you had evaporated milk you  would do well to use that.

biscuits will be like baking powder biscuits, your rue will be sweet, din't think it will work.  Just make a flour gravy you don,t need a rue just a flour and water paste and add to stock. Hope this helps.
