The bread bag experiment has been a success, although it doesn’t magically transform a hardened loaf into a crisp, warm scented just-out-of-the-oven experience. Our bread doesn’t hang around since generally we go through a loaf in two days, but it certainly looks better than in a crumpled brown paper bag. I got marmalade on it, but it will wash.
It has all sorts of other uses too of course, and in different sizes (must have one for baguettes). Maybe I should just make a series of them and see how I use them – we always need a bag for pills and potions when we’re travelling, and since we have stopped using plastic bags they are harder to corrall.
What about a giveaway? Leave a comment telling me the kind of bread you like and the most fascinating thing you know, and I shall capriciously send out bread bags until my attention-span runs out. don’t forget to give me your email address, or email me direct, email@example.com.
I think I’m onto something.
[the bread bag giveaway is now just crumbs...thanks to one and all for the odd facts!]
