This month we are baking Biscuits and Rolls that would fit in nicely at any Thanksgiving table. For more bread recipes, visit the #TwelveLoaves Pinterest board, or check out last month's inspiring selection of #TwelveLoaves Crackers, Crisps, and Flatbreads!

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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
