Biscuits! Fire ants at Pinehurst! VENOM-SPITTING COBRAS! Ease into July 4th with a few bits of North Carolina miscellany.
When my mother-in-law told me my biscuits didn’t come out right because I wasn’t using Shawnee Flour, I didn’t believe her. She was partly right. I was using Northern flour. You need soft-wheat flour to make Southern biscuits, but it doesn’t need to be White Lily as the Atlantic suggests or the brand my mother-in-law favored. I now check the fine print and find any self-rising flour milled in the South works.
Entertaining and informative miscellaneous stuff! I enjoyed reading it.
