Food Storage Recipe - Bulk Basic Biscuit Mix

Basic biscuit mix without the shortening:

This makes a nice old-fashioned “baking powder” type biscuit. It is a lot like the store-bought biscuit mix and can be used in its place in any recipe. This version has no shortening and has an indefinite shelf life.

10 cups flour

10 Tbsp. baking powder

2 tsp. salt

4 tsp. cream of tartar

 4 Tbsp. sugar

 Measure ingredients in a bowl, mix well, and store in a food safe, large canister. I also add an oxygen absorber into the container with the mix. Better safe than sorry.

To make the  biscuits, measure 2 cups of mix into a bowl. Cut in 6 tablespoons butter, margarine, or shortening until crumbly. Stir in 1 cup milk (or buttermilk for fluffier biscuits). Turn onto floured board and knead for half a minute. Do not overwork the dough. Pat into a ½-inch-thick circle and cut with biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 450° F for 15 to 20 minutes or until puffed and golden. This makes about one dozen biscuits. Stock up on this basic biscuit mix. It will be used a lot.
