Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are great choices for Buttermilk Biscuits. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. You could try RELAX Riesling. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 10 dollars per bottle.

RELAX Riesling

From the vineyards of the Mosel wine region, these Riesling grapes ripen in slate and mineral soil and are harvested based on their optimal taste and ripeness. Cold fermented in stainless steel tanks, this wine brings a natural acidity, providing a perfect balance that is refreshingly crisp and leaves your mouth watering for more.RELAX Riesling is fermented slightly dry with a wonderful fruity bouquet and intense flavors of apples and peaches with just a hint of citrus.RELAX Riesling is delicious on its own! But it pairs perfectly with a variety of foods, from grilled seafood and poultry to spicy Asian dishes and fresh salads.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Make the buttermilk. Stir together the milk alternative, I used soy milk, and vinegar. Let stand. Stir together the almond flour, cornstarch, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and sugar until well combined. Add in the butter and cut in with a pastry cutter (a fork will work also) until well blended. Stir in the eggs and buttermilk. If your dough seems a little bit wet so add 1-2 more Tbsp of almond flour. You want your dough to be sticky but not wet. Lightly grease a pan, roll dough into golf-ball sized balls, and place close together but not quite touching. The dough makes 10-12 biscuits. Lightly press each biscuit to slightly flatten so they look more like biscuits as opposed to a roll. Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until nicely browned.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • Arrowroot flour (or arrowroot starch) is a powder made from the roots of the arrowroot plant. It can be used in place of flour or cornstarch to thicken sauces, pie fillings, etc., and it is also popular in gluten-free baking.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

  • If a recipe calls for buttermilk and you don't have any on hand, just pour a tablespoon of white vinegar into a glass and add enough milk to make one cup. Let sit for about five minutes, and voila, a great buttermilk substitute!
