Beaten Biscuit Brake demo

This Friday there is a demo making Beaten Biscuits on an 1877 biscuit brake (not this pic), Cold Water Biscuits from Malinda Russell's cookbook. Just heard about it today... thanks Foodways Pilgrim for posting on Facebook!

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.
