Does stale bread spoil your appetite? To avoid getting into trouble, recycle your bread in no time at all.
Thanks to these tricks, you can give it back its original crispness, its old-fashioned flavours and above all serve it at the table, neither seen nor known!
It’s 8:00 p.m., you go to dinner and find that you have only a stale baguette left in your bread basket.
The local baker’s is closed, so you’re in trouble. No problem, you can bring your crumb back to life by following these tips.
A Cold Water Immersion
For a lively bread, run your baguette under cold water (without soaking it) then put it in the oven for about ten minutes at medium temperature.
This will give you a crispy bread. It is advisable to do this just before eating, as the bread will dry out much faster than a fresh baguette. (Kindly addressed by Jocelyne Bonnet)
The Bowl of Water That Brown The Bread
To recover stale bread, place it in an oven at medium heat with a bowl of water. Your bread will come out warm, soft and crispy.
Consume it quickly to make the most of its new-found flavours. (Kindly addressed by Marie Ranchin)
