The Southern History Of Biscuits

Recipe: Our Favorite Buttermilk Biscuits

We love serving up soft biscuits with melted butter at almost every Southern meal. But, biscuits haven't always been the flaky layers that we're used to. Biscuits were so revered and celebrated in the pre-Civil War South that they were usually reserved for Sundays. Early Southerners actually considered the biscuit a delicacy. Join Test Kitchen Robby Melvin as he goes through the history of this must-have Southern side, from its British origins to our best-ever buttermilk biscuit recipe.
