Big Batch Sourdough Biscuits
A Week of Sourdough Recipes
My hubby loves biscuits. He could eat them with every meal if I made them. But then he grew up with biscuits and dinner rolls, whereas I didn’t. When I was growing up we never had biscuits. My mom Aggie made cornbread muffins using the Jiffy brand muffin mix but we never had southern-style biscuits or any biscuit for that matter. Aggie was a dunker of cookies, donuts and crackers but not of biscuits. We did have the ever popular loaf of Mrs. Karl’s bread stacked up high on the dinning table with each and every meal. No one would eat the top slice, so we flipped the bread.
Flipping the Bread
Believe it or not, there is an art to flipping the bread. At every meal, there would be a stack of Mrs. Karl’s white bread on the table. Sitting on a plate, in the of the table, was the stack of bread ‘centerpiece.’ How to flip the bread. Using one hand, grab and pick up four slices of bread. Flip bread over putting the fourth slice on the top of the stack. Take the top slice and enjoy. It’s as simple as that!
