WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH BREAD CRUMBS
BY CAROLINE COE.
Save the crumbs and the loaves
will take care of themselves!
There's a new twist to an old
adage, and the housekeeper who
throws away in crumbs almost half
the bread she buys or bakes may find
it worthy of her consideration she'll
find it much more profitable than to
worry about her grocery bill.
But there's one thing to be remem
bered in saving crumbs and pieces of
bread, never save moldy bread.
Crumbs may be stale, but they must
not be moldy or else they are neither

have been gathered from the table or
from the bread box they should be
placed in a warm oven to dry. They
must not be baked or toasted, just

a fine sieve and then put the crumbs
away in an air tight can.

dings and croquettes and in sauces,
but some of the ways I have tested

' are given here. Give them a trial, I am
sure you will find them good, and I
know you will find them a great aid
to economy in the kitchen.
