“Not much tops a piping hot biscuit for breakfast, or tea, or just plain snack time - as this butter. It is better than any jelly you could plop atop a steaming hot biscuit! :) It can be kept in the fridge for using just like jams or jellies on other breakfast breads. - Issue 83 - 10/2010 edition.Since biscuits are a Southern tradition this butter is a fitting stand-in for jams and jellies. (Peaches can be substitued for the apricots.:)”
