Posted in : Uncategorized on by : wesleytyler

Thomas Jefferson’s Sweet Potato Biscuits

Makes about 2 dozen biscuits.
These biscuits, faithfully re-created every day at City Tavern (in Philadelphia), were adapted from Thomas Jefferson’s food writings; unsurprisingly, they include one of Thomas Jefferson’s favorite ingredients, pecans.

5 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tbls. baking powder
1 1/2 tsps. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsps. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups roasted, mashed and cooled sweet potatoes
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, ginger and allspice.
3. Add the shortening and cut in with 2 knives until crumbly.
4. Add the sweet potatoes and mix well with a wooden spoon.
5. Add the cream and pecans and stir just until moistened.
6. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough to 1 1/2 inches thick. Cut out with a 2-inch floured biscuit cutter. Place biscuits 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.
7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm or let cool on a wire rack.

Chef’s note: This biscuit dough freezes beautifully unbaked. Just layer the dough between wax paper and store for up to three months. Defrost the dough and follow baking directions.

Recipe for Hen Butter

Recipe for Hen Butter

In response to Carmin’s request for Hen Butter recipe from BBQ
restaurant in Dickens, Texas:

From A History of Dickens County Ranches and Rolling Plains by Fred
Arrington (1971) mention is made of the Matador Ranch and Pitchfork
Ranch cowboys finishing a good breakfast with this recipe:
———
One tin cup syrup
One tin cup sugar
Pour each together and let come to boil for 15 minutes.
Beat three eggs well, pour in and stir and boil again.
Pinch of salt
Flavor with vanilla extract or nutmeg.

It was called Marmalade.
Mrs. J.P. Goen was living on the Pitchfork Ranch in 1904, preserved
the recipe and her son, Guy, makes this when he cooks for gatherings.
It is known now as “Hen Butter.”
———
I remember eating Mr. Goen’s hen butter as a 4-H youngster at 4-H
camp
in the 1960s. His son later served it at his BBQ restaurant in
Dickens,
Texas. When I tried to make it a few years ago, I did’nt’t let the
mixture
cool enough before putting in the eggs and had fried eggs in my hen
butter!
Beverly Darsey Afton, (Dickens County), Texas
