Sourdough Breadcrumbs in a Jar

You've probably heard the adage, "Don't waste the crumbs." One of the wonderful things about making homemade sourdough bread is that breadcrumbs are a natural byproduct!

If you follow my Sourdough Artisan Loaf recipe, the crusty outside will flake off as you cut it, creating beautiful breadrumbs you can use for other meals. So don't waste them! Embrace the mess, grab yourself a pastry scraper and jar, and save those breadcrumbs!

Jar Tips

  • After slicing your fresh-baked bread, use a pastry scraper to easily gather the breadcrumbs from your cutting board.
  • Store your breadcrumbs in a 1/2 L jar. If you're sure they are completely dried out, you can store them in the pantry, however, I prefer to keep mine in the freezer.
  • You can even add larger pieces of old (not moldy), dried out bread. When you're ready to use your crumbs, just put them in the blender until they are your preferred size.
  • When the jar fills up, it's time to make Parmesan-crusted Chicken or another recipe that calls for breadcrumbs!
