How to make biscuit and gravy for a baby teetering on the edge of teetotalling
Posted On July 28, 2021
It’s been a difficult week for everyone, but one biscuit maker who says the stress of having to juggle a growing family and juggling a new job is nothing compared to the stress that comes with teetotaling.
Crispin Jones, who runs the biscuit making business in his small home in south London, has been making biscuits for three years and says it’s taken a toll on his family, but he still has time to make new recipes for their biscuits.
“I think it’s helped a lot,” he said.
The biscuits can now be made on the side of the road for around $1 a piece, so he’s been able to pay his bills and his mortgage.
He has a third baby son who is now just over a year old, and says he’s had to take a back seat to his wife and son.
Jones has spent the past week travelling the world to sell biscuits to supermarkets.
After spending time in Melbourne and Sydney, he made his way to the UK and is now in the process of relocating.
I was just getting ready to start my first full day of work, and I didn’t want to spend the next few weeks in my house doing nothing, so I decided to start this business and just have my little boys on the road, he said, adding he hoped to sell about 100,000 biscuits a year.
His first batch of biscuits are sold in London, and he’s planning to expand to other major markets, including Sydney, Sydney and Melbourne.
We’re still in the infancy of the biscue business and we need to sell more biscuits than we have stock for, he added.
There are about 40 different biscuit types in his shop, with many different types of ingredients.
In fact, the biscuits taste very different depending on where you are in the world, he explained.
Most of the biscuits are made from wheat flour, but some of the flour is also from coconut flour, oats and barley, he says.
It’s all about the colour and the flavour, he told the ABC.
And there’s a lot of work involved in the production process.
To start with, he’s using an electric mixer to blend the flour and sugar into a floury mixture.
Then, he uses an electric spatula to make a paste of the mixture into a dough.
Each biscuit then sits in the tin for around two hours, before it’s baked.
Some of the breads are sold as “biscuits” in the shop.
If the biscuts are not sweet enough, the shop owner says he makes more and more to make them sweeter.
Biscuit makers say they can earn up to $20 a day in sales, which helps them afford to keep their shop open.
While many biscuit makers do pay their bills and keep their business afloat, others struggle with paying their mortgages and other bills.
They also struggle with how to support their children in their work, such as raising a son in a different part of the world.
One mother, who wished to remain anonymous, said she struggled to make ends meet and would only get a few hours of sleep a night.
She said she sometimes found herself eating biscuits in the middle of the night.
