Re: More Food for Thought

No. To me, the browned stuff tastes bitter.

On the bread crust front - My Dad always says that the extra browning
converts the starches to sugars. I can't taste it myself, so I give the
bread crusts to the dog or the chickens

That's interesting Daryl. I tried a short search but only found what I knew already - that the sugar in the dough causes the browning of the crust during baking. You said you can't taste that, so you give it to the animals. Is there a reason you don't want to ingest the starch in the bread that has possibly changed to sugar?
