Do you eat the first and last piece of bread in the loaf (the heel)?
Yes. That's the best part.
Generally no unless I have some pear preserves to put on it. Otherwise I just wait for it to get stale enough to call it croutons.
Homemade or artisan bakery bread yes. Wonder bread, the birdies get it.
The age gap so far is very interesting!!
Waste not, Want not.
I'll reluctantly take it, preferably as french toast or something similar.
I was always told that the ends keep mold away from the rest, so I don't eat it.
Sure. I love crust.
