Tightwad Gourmet – Depression cooking – Cooked bread

Tightwad Gourmet(April 8, 2009) – Now 93, Clara shows us how to salvage a rock hard loaf of old bread, using a recipe she perfected during The Great Depression.

First, she slices the bread into manageable hunks.

Then she adds olive oil – it must be olive oil, not some other kind.  Add salt to taste.

In the meantime, bring a pot of water to a boil.

Add the boiling water to the bread, and mash the bread until it is soft.

Clara tells why the bread is good for infants and old people. With a laugh.

Again we don’t make health claims for these recipes, but they are proven to keep people alive during hard times.
