Perilla Drop Biscuits

Here is an easy, pretty recipe to use with stew.  The weather has been so hot here that cooking in the crock pot is a great way to keep the kitchen cool during the day.  These are a quick addition to stew and can be eaten either crumbled on top or dunked!

Perilla grows at the edge of nearly every field in this area and is an easy herb to dehydrate and use.  It is in the mint family but is not minty.  It has it's own unique flavor leaning toward anise.

Perilla Drop Biscuits


4 cups self rising flour
1/2 cup oil
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons dried, crushed Perilla
1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 400.  Combine all ingredients and mix well.  It will be sticky.

Drop spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden.

Makes two pan fulls.  You can cut in half for a smaller result.
