How to Store Homemade Bisquick
Homemade Bisquick does not contain added chemical preservatives that make it suitable for storing in the cupboard or pantry. It will spoil quickly if left at ambient temperature – although this will not injure you, but it won’t have a pleasant flavor either.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.
