Blue Apron is now on video! Every Thursday, we’re posting a new video on our YouTube channel and over here on the blog.

We’ve already shared the secrets to the best bok choy and helped you figure out the meaning of “season to taste.”

Now, we’re back with an essential kitchen tip that’s key for reducing food waste. Unless you’re a total carb-o-phile or share a household with eternally hungry teenage boys, you may not get through a loaf of preservative-free bakery bread before it gets stale. That means, sadly, that extra bread winds up in the trash.

That’s exactly the reason that we store our fresh bread in the fridge or the freezer. The cold preserves a loaf’s lifespan, but it robs the bread of its crisp exterior and chewy crumb. What to do about the problem created by our preservation solution?

Don’t worry, we’ve got a solution to that too. Watch the video to see the easiest way to recrisp your bread.

To recap, simply stick your frozen or refrigerated loaf right into a 475°F oven and leave it there for about 2 or 3 minutes, just until it’s hot and crispy. Then use the bread however you’d like and rejoice in how fresh and crispy it is.
