Soda Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon soda (scant)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour milk (scant)
  • 2 tablespoons shortening (lard or other fat)

Instructions

Proceed as for Baking-powder Biscuits.

If the sour milk is not thick enough to curdle, it will not contain sufficient acid to neutralize the soda, and the biscuits will be yellow and bitter. To avoid this, cream of tartar may be mixed with the soda (1 teaspoonful). If there is no cream of tartar at hand, it will be wise to use the recipe for Baking-powder Biscuits.
