I've made bread crumbs from my homemade bread that's gone stale. That doesn't happen a lot because DH eats most all the bread and what he doesn't the girls get as a rare treat. But when I've done it, I like to brush the bread lightly with a little olive oil, sprinkle seasoning on it (like Italian or whatever fits the dish we're making), cube it and bake until crispy. We've never had any leftover to store, so not sure about that part. If using fresh bread, I like to toast it a bit to make it easier to work with and faster drying in the oven. I'll keep my eye out for a roadside stand! I've been checking at the grocery store and their peaches have come from CA...I'd much prefer the wonderful GA ones. Thanks for the heads up!
