How many times have a bought a loaf of bread or a baguette only to have become rock hard the next day? Instead of throwing away perfectly good food, try this tip from Chef Sara Moulton for bringing back the soft and chewy texture of fresh baked bread to your loaves.
On an episode of the Rachel Ray Show, Sara demonstrates how she simply rinses the loaf of bread under running water and pops it in the oven! She even has a bonus tip for removing mold from hard and semisoft cheeses. Because mold can’t penetrate far into hard cheese like cheddar or Parmesan, it’s safe to eat if you cut and remove the moldy parts from a large block of cheese.
These are great tips for saving food and money and please share them with your friends and family.
