Don’t waste those stale biscuits

Don’t waste those stale biscuits
Don’t throw out stale biscuits. Preserve them, instead.

Remember the sourdough biscuit experiment? And all of trials? Well, they sat in a Tupperware, uneaten. 

Before they go bad, rather than putting them in the garbage or the compost, I preserved them, instead. All they are is a mixture of flour, salt, baking powder, sourdough starter discard, and some lard. 

Preserving the Stale Biscuits

I ground them up in my food processor, put them into a container, and put them in the freezer. From here, they might get freeze-dried, but I’m not worried about them if the power goes out and the freezer contents thaw. The crumbs will be just fine. 

Uses for Biscuit Crumbs

Here are my plans for the stale biscuits, now that they are crumbs : 
  • Use them as bread crumbs for costing chicken 
  • Use the crumbs as part of the flour contents in some of my baking 
  • Maybe even pat them into a pie plate to make a pie crust.. that should work. I will keep you posted on that. 

Do you have any other suggestions?
