And the Secret Ingredient in this Classic is… Lard (Of Course)

VERNON, CA, UNITED STATES, May 8, 2022 / -- How about greeting this Mother’s Day with biscuits and preserves just like mom used to make –- although in this case, dad or the kids can do the actual prep honors?

The latest recipe from Greg Hozinsky, Coast Packing Company’s Corporate Chef, is certain to delight everyone in the house. Here are step-by-step instructions for homemade meltables, topped off by your own fresh strawberry preserves.

Mom’s Best Buttermilk Biscuits- Makes 10-12 biscuits
This recipe is simple and quick to make. The key to making a good biscuit is not to overwork the dough; you want to work it as little as possible to get that great flaky and crumbly texture. That’s why lard makes the best pie crust and biscuits: lard contains much less moisture than butter. Moisture, when added to flour, develops gluten, leaving your breads and pastries chewy. "In my opinion, these biscuits are best enjoyed fresh, so if you’re making your own preserves, do so at least a day before you make the biscuits."
