Default Buttermilk Biscuit's and Country Gravy


Buttermilk Biscuits and Country Gravy by Mark V Warren, on Flickr

Buttermilk Biscuits

Ingredients:
2 cups Flour
1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1 Tbsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
3 Tbsp. Lard (not the hydrogenated kind) ->*VERY COLD
2 Tbsp. Butter ->*VERY COLD
1 cup Buttermilk

(Buttermilk is made using 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice in the cup and fill the rest of it with Milk to the 1 cup mark, just let it sit for 5 minutes).

Preheat your oven or toaster oven now to 425 degrees F

KEEP THE FATS IN THE FRIDGE UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO QUICKLY ADD THEM.
I use a Food Processor to mix this as quick as possible so the Fats donít start to melt before you get them in the oven or toaster oven. Put everything but the Buttermilk into the Food Processor and pulse them together real quick about 8 times (not too much we still want to see some chucks or clumps of the Fat). Turn it on and quickly stream in most of the Buttermilk. You donít want to use it all, but just enough until it forms into a ball that is kind of sticking together and that is it. Quickly take it out and press it or using a rolling pin, roll it out to about 1Ē thick. Use a cutter or a glass to get your shapes cut and on your baking sheet. No need to grease it.

Cooking Directions:
Quickly put it in your Preheated 425 degrees F oven and bake for 12 - 15 minutes.

Yield:
About 4 Buttermilk Biscuits

wish together over medium heat- it should be slack by Mark V Warren, on Flickr

Trick - use plastic wrap to get the meat out of the measuring cup.

After adding and cooking through the Celery and Onions add the Milk and then the Roux we made earlier and vigorously stir in to incorporate the Roux before it starts to thicken with the heat.

add back the Roux you took out in the beginning and quickly stir by Mark V Warren, on Flickr

Keep stirring until the Gravy is thickened and turn off the heat and serve over your Biscuit's.
