I use it to make breadcrumbs… .
I do not remember when was the last time I bought breadcrumbs. I do not use a lot of it in my cooking but when I need it it’s always in my fridge. Once a month or even less often I gather all the old bread I have lying around and make breadcrumbs. It’s not a lot, as I almost always eat my bread before it goes bad but, sometimes it happens that I forget about it or it goes bad (means get hard and no so fresh) faster than I expected.
To make my breadcrumbs I always use french bread from the store or left overs from home-baked. I’ve never tried to make it from whole grain bread but I suppose it will be even better and healthier.
Many recipes call for toasting bread slices (that you going to use for your breadcrumbs) in the oven. Mine doesn’t. I wait a few days until the bread gets hard and very crunchy and than I blend it.
First I crush it with my hands to make it easy to blend. After that I use blender. It works perfect.
…and I store it in the fridge – for months… .
I remember my grandmother used to do that, after that it was my mom and now it’s me. It’s funny how many little memories comes in handy when you’re a grown up. Sometimes they stay as just memories but in my case, most of the time, they’re really useful in a practical way.
