Today it's breadcrumbs. Yes, I said breadcrumbs. The crunchy little powdered stuff we buy in a canister at a grocery store for $3 or so. Hmmm...something funny about that. NOW let me ask you how many "heels" or dry bread you throw away every week? Hmmm....see where I'm going with this?
So this is how it works...
We make our own bread of course so, with no preservatives the ends sometimes get dry after 4-5 days and no one eats them; understandable. But even if you do not make your own bread I know you have those heels that most people throw away. DON'T! Here are two ways to do this. First you can put that piece in the freezer and wait until they add up and make a bulk batch of breadcrumbs only when you know you will need them. OR you can do what we do and make the crumbs as you go along and store them in the fridge or, for long term storage, in the freezer.
Camille shows us how. She is the bread maker in the family. No she does not work but she does actually make the bread so it only made sense to have her be the breadcrumb maker as well. This is what she does:
She cuts the dried up ends into cubes and places them in the blender. She chops them up real small and then spreads them out onto a baking sheet to dry for the rest of the day. We then put them in a jar and keep them in the fridge. Viola! Breadcrumbs! So, that wasn't so hard. Now you don't have to buy them anymore!
Aren't you glad you stopped by today?
