Drying Extra Bread

A trip to the bread store can result in a huge cost savings for you and your family. More often than not bakeries will go into extra production for holidays and the left over day old bread is placed on a heavy discount. You can fill the freezer with the extra bread for keeping mold away, but when that freezer fills up what to do next?

Remove the bread from the plastic bags and place them on oven trays to dry out in a 170-degree oven for 24 to 36 hours. These hard loafs can be kept for months and used for instant breadcrumbs or stuffing later on down the road.

We use large plastic containers for our dry goods storage. The dried loaves are kept in there from any rodents and the twisty ties seal the bread from any other insect activity. We have kept dried bread on our shelves for up to a year before we use them.
