Recycled bread... is that even a "thing?"
It may well be the case more recently that recycled bread appears to have been around for a while, although apparently no-one really speaks about it. It may even be the best kept secret in baking!
The reason why I say that, is because we recently did an experiment to look at new ways to recycle and become more sustainable as a university over the past week. We had heard about an article that British Baker ran on a bakery in London, where old bread is recycled into new bread. Now we had heard of using old bread up in products such as bread pudding, but in terms of adding it to the final dough, this was something new! So with this in mind and being curious, we decided to have a go and see what happened! Here are the results;
So how do you make recycled bread?
Well first off, you need some old bread. It is really important that you know where this bread came from and what's in it as well. Otherwise you might have an allergen issue. The recycled bread starts life by being sliced and then water is added to it to make into into a porridge type consistency.
