(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.
