*To make fresh bread crumbs, simply pulse the bread, preferably at least day old bread, in a food processor until roughly the size of peppercorns. If you are using bread with a thick crust, remove the crust before pulsing. Dried breadcrumbs or Panko should not be used in place of fresh. *This recipe can be made with other fruits, too. For an autumn version, use 6 to 8 apples, peeled and thinly sliced, and add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon with the sugar.*This recipe was reprinted, with permission from Bread Toast Crumbs by Alexandra Stafford.
