After a successful seedling sale, we know all y’all are about to have an abundance of produce. We wanted to join the #QuarantineRecipe bandwagon and offer up a series of recipes you can make using your Benevolence Farm grown produce. Our communications volunteer Brittany is offering up a Southern classic using the thyme she purchased from our farm.
Do you have a recipe you want to submit? Send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Recipes for Change”. Don’t forget to mention which ingredient comes from Benevolence Farm and please include pictures if you have them! We love pictures.
Here’s Brittany’s recipe. Enjoy!
Buttermilk & Benevolence Farm Thyme Drop Biscuits
- 2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp. chopped fresh Benevolence Farm – grown thyme
- 1 tbsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 4 tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut it into small pieces
- 1 cup of buttermilk
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl then use a pastry blender or fork to mix the butter into your flour, making sure to break it up until the whole mixture is coarse and the butter is broken into small bits.
- Mix in the buttermilk until a sticky dough forms.
- Drop about 1/3 cup of the dough in mound shapes onto a baking sheet, greased or a non-stick sheet is fine.
- Bake 15-20 minutes, until golden brown, rotate the baking sheet halfway through.
- Remove, serve warm and enjoy!
