Beaten Biscuit Brake demo
Jun 25 Fri 3 Forgotten Recipes of the Smokies with Virginia Willis — Beaten Biscuits. 'Cold Water Biscuits' recipe from Malinda Russell’s A Domestic Cookbook, 1866, will be made using Virginia Willis own 1877 Biscuit Brake. The Old Mill. TN. Facebook live, 30 min. TAPE HERE
Some time, when I have time, I will make a post on the various ways to make Beaten Biscuits, various brakes, and beat down some myths on beaten biscuits.
The image is a marbletop biscuit brake with the hand crank on the opposite side of the stand, in a private home. Actually the model the speaker used turned out to be a marble top, rather than the sketch in the promo.
