Don't Buy Another Zip Lock Bag!

by Kevin "Chef Kev"

Years ago I was on retreat at a monastery, and the monks would reuse their left over bread wrappers as storage bags for any number of uses. They kept them on a cardboard tube hanging in the kitchen. It'll take a while to get a good supply going but once you do you'll be freed from buying zip locks!

Thanks for the tip. i live in the Uk and it took me a while to understand what a zip lock bag was, I'm guessing its one of those resealable food bags.

Unfortunately we don't get those bread bags here in the Uk but I agree they are useful to hang on to when you get one.
