The 8th Grade has been busy working on a farm based business making garlic, cheddar, chive biscuit dough from scratch in the school kitchen. They named their business BBBBiscuits! and offered pre-ordered frozen biscuit dough for pick up just before school got out for Christmas. They had to limit sales quite a bit for fear of not being able to keep up with demand. So far they have learned about supply and demand, gross vs. net profits, just how much work it takes to come up with and make a product, bottom line (profit) vs. triple bottom line (profit, social good and environmental good), and more.
Sarah reads the recipe while Daniel and Denis add together the dry ingredients.
Here are all of our dry ingredients, ready for butter and buttermilk.
Alex cuts up the fresh butter to add to the mix.
Camilla cuts in the butter using a pastry blender.
Daniel and Denis concentrate on mincing garlic and chives.
Sarah Sophia just sticks with the garlic.
I'm not sure what Daniela and Sarah are doing here. Maybe trying to decide if Daniel and Denis did a good enough job?
A few pointers on chopping from our adult baking volunteer of the day, Jeanne.
Many thanks to our photographer, Anne Haas, for taking such beautiful photos.
