Country Biscuits — a 200+ Year Old Tradition Revived w/ Einkorn
In the 1780′s, the Revolutionary War having been won, Patrick Kendrick Sr., his wife and family and members of the Horton family moved 400 miles from Stafford, VA. to the Southwestern part of the Appalachian mountains in the Clinch Valley. The log cabin they built was a part of the home I grew up in during the 1950′s and 60′s. It’s where I developed my love of real food, gardening, raw milk, homemade butter, buttermilk and biscuits - Most of all biscuits. On Sundays, my grandmother, Corrie, would make biscuits and I stood right there watching her every move. Sometimes she would let me sift the flour and dry ingredients, sometimes I got to stir the dough. Always, I got to taste it. I love raw dough, and can tell from one taste whether the end product will turn out. It all started there with little bits of dough from the blue and white enameled metal bowl that was our “biscuit bowl”.
Corrie learned to make biscuits from her mother, and the tradition has been carried forward from mother to daughter or granddaughter. As far as I know, the roots of this recipe probably go back before the 1800′s.
