Making Bread Crumbs

In this post I told you about reviving my sourdough starter, Prudence, and that my plans were to bake enough bread to do a big batch of bread crumbs and then to bake several loaves to slice and freeze.

Today, I'm making the bread crumbs …

I removed the loaves of bread from the refrigerator where they've been patiently waiting for me to get to them …

sliced them …

cut the slices into strips ...

then cross sliced them to make cubes …

I then loaded up my dehydrator, even though this photo doesn't show it, every tray was full  …

I had enough for a flat pan to go in the oven (with the oven light on) …

and another flat tray full sitting on top of the stove waiting to either go in the dehydrator or oven, which ever becomes available first …

Once all the bread crumbs are dry, I'll start grinding them up and put them back on a pan in the oven (with the oven light on) for one last 'make sure everything is dry' session.  Then, when they're completely cooled, I'll vacuum seal them in jars and add them to my pantry.

I'll add pictures to this post as each step is completed so you can see the process all the way through, so check back again!

  1. There is something so satisfying about grinding up dry bread. Okay, I am strange. :)

    1. Lana, it is kind of satisfying isn't it!!! Like the 'ping' of a jar sealing!

  2. I do mine in the oven since I don't have a dehydrator. I always try to keep extra on hand. I find it easier to make a lot at one time like you do.
