Sometimes the simplest little tips can be the best time savers in the kitchen! Have you ever gone to use your brown sugar, only to find you need an ice pick to break it apart? Well, here's a simple answer...place a bread end into your brown sugar container and enjoy soft sugar all the time. The moisture from the bread keeps the sugar soft, and you won't have to worry about the bread turning moldy. Once it dries up, just add another slice. In my home, this is a great way to use my bread ends so that they don't go to waste.
That's not all...here's another way to use bread ends...Do you ever cut your potatoes ahead of time and let them sit in the fridge until you're ready to make mashed potatoes? Well, you can keep your potatoes from turning brown by covering them with a little salt water and placing a bread end on the top. Magic! White potatoes even hours later.
