End to End

I opened a new loaf of bread this morning to fix myself a sandwich for lunch. As we always do, I passed by the end piece and got the next two pieces of bread.

And then I wondered, why don't we just throw out the end piece to begin with??? But no, it stays in there and every time we get bread we pass it by and get the next piece. Then we make sure it fits nicely back in its place before tying the bread wrapper back up. It'll stay in there until it meets the other end piece. When that happens, we'll take both end pieces and throw them outside for the dogs or birds or whatever finds it first. Crazy.

So, do you all do that too or do you eat the end pieces or do you throw the first end piece out as soon as the bread is opened?

Ew crust. We throw them out to the birds. If Sarah Lee ever made a good, crustless bread I would buy it all up!

The ends gross me out, but my husband eats them. Or so he says.

We leave the first end until it meets the other end. (I think it helps keep the next piece fresher)
That's for regular sliced bread.
When I bake my own, we tend to fight for the end! I have no idea what makes the difference.

Same here. I think it keeps the next piece fresher. I agree with MrsH on homemade it is the best and the ends are great.
