How to Revive Firm Bread
This food hack is sponsored by
Artisanal breads that do not have many (if any) preservatives and are loosely bagged often become firm quicker than traditional breads from big box stores. All hope is not lost though! If the bread is still before or at the sell-by date listed on the package and is merely just too firm for your liking, you can revive it to its (near) original glory. Try this…
Run water (hot or cold) over the loaf for no more than 30 seconds and then place it into the oven on a baking sheet for 5-7 minutes. Set the oven to its “warm” setting or 300 °F. Keep an eye on the loaf and increase the temperature and/or time a little as needed.
