The episode on southern cooking, and biscuits in particular, had me awash in waves of nostalgia. My grandma made the best biscuits I ever ate, and that's not just nepotism. We would go down there on holidays and strangers [often, to me] and family members would drop in at the crack of dawn, some just happened to be around [and she lived in rural, RURAL, LA] some were on a road trip and swung by. Everyone made a concerted effort to get there when her biscuits would be coming out of the oven. Made about 3-4 dozen every morning. Nothing to document the process but her hands and her brain. Honey, real butter, Johnny's Sorghum, Paw-paw [southern tree fruit that had the consistency of a real big raisin or a mango, looked like a brown lemon with a tangerine-like skin, you can pick them green or assorted shades of yellow but brown is the best, and a flavor somewhere between apple butter and spiced bourbon] jelly.
