Poly Flour is a mixed Flour recipe I have used for years. I have tested this with many things and still testing today. It was one of my tricks for various food items and you will see why as I update the uses for this Flour Mix in time when I make them again.
This is a mix that I have tested with Biscuits, Tortillas, Pita Breads, Pancakes and other recipes with great success. You are going to want this Poly Flour on standby in your kitchen. It’s Easy as 1-2-3 and truly is versatile.
When Looking at the Ingredients, you might be thinking it’s just Biscuit Flour and yeah that’s true for the most part. However it’s so much more than just a Biscuit Dough. When you realize how this dough can be used. It opens up so many other possibilities that just give you far better results.
This is a Major Money Saver Ingredient. No longer do you have to buy Pancake mix, Biscuit mix, Deep Fry Batter Mix, Muffin Mix, Tortillas, Pitas, Seasoned Flour and other items where this can be used or added. The additional benefit is that if you have Poly Flour already made up. A lot of these recipes can be made with very little effort. Biscuits can be made up in 15 minutes. Pancakes in 10 minutes. Hot and Fresh straight out the oven or Hot of the Griddle!
Poly Flour Storage
I make up a batch of this and store it in an airtight container on the shelf or in a cool dry place. It can stay here for quite a long time, a few months, 4-6 months.
For long term storage. Refrigerate or place in the freezer. In this case it will last up to 1 year if frozen.
Lard vs Butter or Oils
You might be tempted to exchange the Lard with Butter. Don’t.
It is crucial to how it coats the Flour. Also it comes into play when combined with other Items for Flavor, Texture and its effects when cooked. Where Butter just won’t hold up or have the same effect.
