After yesterday’s yummy Apple Sauce, today we will discuss the most used ingredient which mostly used in starters in different ways but still many of us bought from market even that’s really easy or I must say, nothing to do to make it… confused??? I am talking about “Bread Crumbs”.
See if a recipe required “Panko”- Japanese Bread crumbs then that’s a different thing but when we have to use simple one then why to buy from market. People also got confused between FRESH and DRIED Bread Crumbs and sometimes use them wrongly. Example a recipe needs dried but we used fresh crumbs and the result goes down with our expectations. Let me tell you the difference first.
Fresh Bread Crumbs mostly used in and as basic ingredient to absorb the extra moisture to get more crispy result, other side mostly (not every time) Dried Bread Crumbs used to cover up the dish to get crisp in fried recipes.
People have one more confusion that fresh one is ok but how to store Bread Crumbs when a Bread have always a “BEST BEFORE or EXPIRY DATE” then it will be unhealthy BUT its not true. Bread is a fermented product that’s why it have a date to use in best condition but when make it dried, all moisture will get away and in dry condition fermentation automatically stopped so Dried Bread Crumbs will stay fresh for months. But how??? Its just simple as I will tell below…
SSJ's EASIEST HOMEMADE FRESH & DRIED BREAD CRUMBS
FOR FRESH BREAD CRUMBS:
Take one slice of bread, break in any size and put in your mixer. Now run your mixer for just 30 seconds and you’ll get fresh rough BREAD CRUMBS ready to use. This condition have good amount of moisture and you must use it when made.
FOR DRIED BREAD CRUMBS :
Now when you need to store Bread Crumbs for later use. Just make fresh bread crumbs as above mentioned method. Now put then in a microwave safe dish and put it for just 1 minute with a interval after 30 seconds. In interval, take the dish out and just spread them with a spoon, it will take away the extra moisture and fresh air will make bread crumbs hard and dried. After 1 minute, let bread crumbs stay open to get fresh air for few minutes (maximum 4-5 minutes) and you’ll see a good quality DRIED BREAD CRUMBS. You can store them upto 3 month and more. Just remember one thing, don’t store Dried Bread Crumbs in fridge ever or they will get moisture again and spoil anytime.
Now don’t go out to get Bread Crumbs ever, enjoy at your own home. You can make them by your leftover Bread Crusts also the same way. You can dry them by drying roasting on low heat also for just 2 minutes.
