Artisan Baguette Bread. There is something so satisfying about baking your own bread. Today I just baked a fresh Baguette bread. It's so crusty and delicious.
How to Revive Stale Bread?
Wrap the bread in a damp (not soaking) towel, place on a baking sheet, and pop it in the oven for 5-10 minutes. In the microwave: Wrap the bread in a damp (not soaking) towel, place it on a microwave-safe dish, and microwave on high for 10 seconds. Check and repeat if necessary.
A crusty baguette tastes best when eaten within a few hours of baking and goes stale quite quickly due to its small size. In addition to a lack of flavor, stale baguettes becomes rock hard and difficult to chew due to a process called retrogradation. The good news is you can soften and revive a stale baguette, making it taste almost like fresh bread. The baguette will turn stale quickly, so wait to revive it until just before you plan to eat it. You can only revive a baguette one time, so try to use up the softened baguette quickly.
Moisten the baguette with an ice cube or cold, running water, making a quick pass under the water so the bread is moist but not soaked.
Wrap the baguette with aluminum foil, tightly sealing all seams to trap in steam.
Set the foil-wrapped baguette on your oven's center rack. Set the temperature to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Do not place the loaf on a pan and do not preheat the oven.
