Elgin Biscuits

I recently rediscovered one of my favorite biscuit recipes. On a cold morning there is nothing like a kitchen warmed by a stove filled with hot baked biscuits.

Friends from Natchez shared this family recipe with me. What makes it unique is that it has been modified to suit restricted diets by eliminating salt and sugar.

I hope you’ll try this recipe and share it with others, especially those who are unable to eat salts and sugars. I think you’ll agree that these biscuits are especially good.

Candied Orange Peel Scones

Chef Martha Foose at the Viking Cooking School was inspired by the scones her grandmother used to prepare when she developed this recipe.

Candied orange peel gives these scones some extra zip. They are delicious with afternoon tea or that first cup of morning coffee.
