Ingredients for 5

  • 1 cup (120 grams) all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) granulated sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.5 g) baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 g) salt

  • 1/2 cup (115 mL) buttermilk, chilled

  • 4 tablespoons (56.5 grams) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to warm room temperature

Directions

  • Step 1

    Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 195ºF (90.5ºC). Generously grease 5 half-pint canning jars with non-stick oil spray or butter.

  • Step 2

    In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt.

  • Step 3

    In a liquid measuring cup, pour butter into chilled buttermilk. Stir until the butter forms distinct clumps in the buttermilk.

  • Step 4

    Pour buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture. Stir until just combined.

  • Step 5

    Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup, divide biscuit dough between prepared jars. (You should use 1/4 cup per jar).

  • Step 6

    Place lids and bands on jars and seal until just tight (do not over-tighten jars; air will still need to escape). Place the jars in the water bath and set the timer for 2 hours.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 1

      When the timer goes off, remove the jars from the water bath and transfer to a towel. Carefully remove the lids. Let the biscuits cool for 5 minutes before gently removing them from the jars. Serve warm.
