>(anyone have any clever slicing tips?)
Well I have but two methods I use to slice my loaves from my 1 lb box..
1: I have a "Fiddlebow" bread knife. This is a special knife Well I'll draw
=================================== <--Handel part
I____________________I <--Blade part
This is viewed from the cuttting edge and is not to scale
As you can see the blade forms a "Bow" like a fiddle bow. With the wood handel
Since the blade and the handel are PARRELLEL (not "In line" as is "normal")
the handel forms a sliceing guide. I get rather good results with this.
2: I use a "Meat Slicer". Mine is a "Hand crank" unit I got at a used
store for a good price but it's the good old "Spinning wheel" type slicer
like the stores use to slice cheese and lunchmeat. Works well for bread
And I love fresh bread :)
