Buttermilk-Black Garlic Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 2 C flour
  • 2-1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t black salt
  • 5 T butter, chilled and cubed
  • 3 cloves black garlic (click for an intro to black garlic)
  • 1/2 T granulated garlic
  • 3/4 C cold buttermilk
  • 1 T raw honey


Procedure
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and black salt. Add the butter cubes, black garlic, and granulated garlic. Use your fingertips to press the butter into the butter, forming flat leaves. Place the bowl in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes.

While the butter-flour mixture chills, whisk together the buttermilk and honey. After 10 minutes, pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour and stir lightly until it comes together into a ball.

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured piece of parchment paper. Knead gently just a few times to bring it together. The dough may still be a little crumbly. Roll the dough into a 5" x 9" rectangle about 1/2" thick. Using the long side of the rectangle, fold the dough into thirds like a business letter. Once again, roll the dough into a 5" x 9" rectangle about 1/2" thick and, again, fold it into thirds like a letter. Roll the dough out to 1/2" to 3/4" thick. Using a metal edged shape - I use a measuring cup - cut biscuits from the dough and transfer to a baking stone, leaving about 1" between them. I gathered the scraps, rerolled, and cut more biscuits until I was completely out of dough.

Bake until the biscuits have risen and are golden brown on top, approximately 12 to 14 minutes. Remove the baking sheet and transfer the biscuits to a wire rack. Allow to cool for a few minutes and serve warm.

  2. I've not used black garlic either, but have been hearing the raving reviews of it. I would love to try it, especially in these beautiful biscuits when I find it.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
