Buttermilk Strawberry Shortcake INGREDIENTS


3 cups all-purpose flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1⁄3 cup white sugar 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt 3⁄4 cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 1 cup buttermilk 2 tablespoons heavy cream 1⁄4 cup turbinado sugar


8 cups sliced fresh strawberries 1⁄4 cup white sugar 1 tablespoon lemon juice


DIRECTIONS


Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1⁄3 cup white sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl.


Cut in cold butter with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk until the flour mixture is moistened.


Drop 1⁄3-cup scoops of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush biscuits with heavy cream and sprinkle generously with turbinado sugar.


Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.


Mix together the sliced strawberries, 1⁄4 cup white sugar, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Allow berries to rest until juices develop, about 30 minutes. Serve the strawberries with juice over the biscuits. Makes 12 servings.


Time to Get Back to Basics M


ay is National Electrical Safety Month. While


safety is a co-op priority year-round, Kiwash Electric takes this opportunity to challenge you to make home electrical safety a primary concern.


The Consumer Electronics Association finds the average home today has a minimum of three televisions, two DVD players, at least one digital camera, one desktop computer, and two cell phones.


Many homes and their electrical systems were built before many modern home electronics and appliances were invented. Today’s increased demand for energy can overburden an older home’s electrical system.


The following tips will help you identify and eliminate electrical hazards:


• Make sure entertainment centers and computer equipment have plenty of space around them for ventilation.


• Use extension cords as a temporary solution, and never as a permanent power supply.


If you’re using a lot of power strips in your home, you probably need more outlets. Call an electrician to install more.


• Don’t place extension cords in high traffic areas, under carpets, or across walkways, where they pose a potential tripping hazard.


• Use a surge protector to protect your computer and other electronic equipment from damage caused by voltage changes.


• Heavy reliance on power strips is an indication that you have too few outlets to address your needs. Have additional outlets installed by a qualified, licensed electrician.


• Keep liquids, including drinks, away from electrical items such as televisions and computers.
