Mum reveals bizarre hack to keep bread fresh for days after its use-by date – and all you’ll need is some celery

WITH lockdown in place many of us are trying to make are groceries last as long as possible to avoid unnecessary trips to the supermarket.

And one mum has shared her genius tip for keeping your bread fresher for longer, and all you’ll need is some celery.

Taking to the Facebook group Feeding a Family on £1 a Day, she explained:“TIP: I had a loaf of bread I couldn’t fit in the freezer and was already using one.

“I watched a YouTube video and it said if you put a stick of celery in the bag it keeps the bread fresher for longer so tried.

“Just finished the last slices off and the bread was fine and it was dated the 19th of April – so 10 days out of date.

“I don’t know how it works but it does.”

The science behind the trick is that the bread absorbs the moisture from celery, preventing it from drying out.

The mum was quick to reassure a few sceptics that the vegetable didn’t impact the taste of the bread whatsoever, leaving fellow group members seriously impressed.

“Wow, that is worth knowing – thank you” said one, with another adding,”That’s mad!”
