I'm on a quest to build my food storage into a 1 year supply with foods that I know my family will eat. I've decided to keep a blog with recipes that I know my family will love and using only pantry or food storage items, and maybe in the interim this might help someone else who is also working on obtaining a 1 year supply with foods that not only your family can survive on but they will also love eating. If anyone has any recipes that they would like to add please email me at basicfoodstorage@gmail.com

Sweet Potato Biscuits

1 large can of sweet potatoes (preferably without syrup), if with syrup drain them well.
1/2 c. unsalted butter
1 c. and 2 T. Cold buttermilk or (1c. milk with 1 T. lemon juice)
3 c. all purpose flour (sifted before measuring)
1 1/2 T. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 T. sugar
1/4 t. cayenne (optional)

Heat oven to 475. Drain can of sweet potatoes, then mash up well. Add Buttermilk to sweet potatoes and set aside.

In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cayenne). Cut in 1 T. at a time of butter until resembling a coarse meal. Then stir in sweet potato mixture using a wooden spoon. Mix until just lightly mixed. Then turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead for 3-4 turns. Then pat into a 7x10 rectangle. Cut out biscuits. Place biscuits 2" apart on baking pan. Bake on top shelf for 15-20 min. Then serve warm.
