Would you eat it if you can't see any on other pieces? Thinking I may just wait until tea time..

No! Are you really THAT hungry?

It's penicillin!  (Well unless it is a rye loaf then it is LSD!)


I just pick off the mould and chuck it in the toaster.


I have a very healthy immune system, I like to think 40 years of slap dash housewifery, and a distinct casualness in regards to best before dates and 'she'll be right' cookery has got me here!

I thought the green mould was penicillin? I just cooked some tinned spaghetti instead.. The whippet ate the toast..

I'd just pick off the mould.

shrug.gif I grew up on a farm, so we wasted very little.  If the bread got stale, then you toasted it of broke it into breadcrumbs and froze them for when needed.

We cut mould off cheese as well..  No biggie.

Bread is what - 20cents a slice at most?  I find mould on bread maybe twice a year?  Perhaps it is indicative of a profligate urban lifestyle and a renouncement of traditional values but I can live with binning 40cents a year not to have to eat mould!

I have been known to pick off the section with mould whether bread or cheese, and toast the bread before eating.

But if the whole package is mouldy I toss it.

Lynny: I read it that the question was whether you would eat the other pieces in the whole loaf if some pieces had mould. So not about binning a couple of slices but about binning the whole loaf.

I must admit I would certainly eat the pieces without mould

Yes, and the mould off the top of the jam

Wow from me too.
I don't eat bread with mould on it, but I will eat the rest of the bread in the packet as long as it looks ok, and I will eat bread well past its use-by date as long as it looks and feels ok. Mind you I mostly don't eat much bread anyway.

Never touching mouldy bread again.  Eurgh!!

Mind you, I also once saw a documentary where they showed bread had mould even when you don't see it, so the throwing it out after a few days (unless it is refrigerated) is actually good sense.

#15 wish*upon*a*star

Posted 10 February 2013 - 01:55 PM

Sorry OP I would bin the lot.
I only eat fresh that day bread too melrose. I worked in a bakery for years and anything day old just doesn't cut it after that.

#16 Soontobegran

Posted 10 February 2013 - 01:58 PM

No I would throw the entire loaf out if there was mould on a few slices because that mould has spores that could have contaminated the rest of the loaf and it 'may' make you very sick.
I am not in such a hard place financially that eating the $1.50 the loaf has cost is necessary. I understand there may be others in different circumstances willing to take the risk.

I do not throw out 2 day old bread though, if it looks clean it makes good toast and toasted sandwiches.

Why not just toast it instead of wasting it? I don't like bread older than a day either. So I turn it into toast.

OP I would throw out the affected bread for the health reasons others have stated - there may be spores throughout the rest of the slice or loaf.

#18 Bluemakede

Posted 10 February 2013 - 02:03 PM

I wouldn't eat the other slices cause you just don't know if it has spread or not. But I won't throw out bread the day after it was baked, to me that is a huge waste, that bread will get used for toasted sandwiches or toast, it toasts better if it's not fresh.

I'll cut mould off hard cheese though.

#19 (feral)epg

Posted 10 February 2013 - 02:08 PM

Wouldn't eat the mould or the adjacent 2 or so slices, and would check that the remaining bread is not at all moist or smelly, but would and have eaten the rest.  Might be inclined to toast it - but older bread is generally better toasted anyway.  With a bit of cheese - just to add to the microbial load!

There may well be mould spores in the rest of the bread but mould is ubiquitous and we probably eat mould spores really frequently without even knowing about it.

(nb if I was pregnant or immunocompromised I wouldn't touch it)

#20 Imaginary friend

Posted 10 February 2013 - 02:48 PM

yes I'd throw out the mouldy slices and next couple down - but toast the others.

I certainly dont throw out bread just because it is 2 days old - its fine for toast then.

And if  I was throwing out lots of 2 day old bread I would just freeze every loaf and use from frozen - like I used to when I had a smaller household

#21 FeralSis

Are you sure it is actually mould?

The reason I ask is I had a loaf of bread from the supermarket freshly purchased.

I went to make a sandwich for DD and was alarmed to see what looked like black mould on a couple of corners.

I rang the customer service number and they asked me questions about use by etc. Turns out it was machine oil from the slicer. I did not eat those pieces but was relieved that it was not in fact mould.

#22 Silver Girl

Posted 10 February 2013 - 02:50 PM

I would not eat the bread at all but I am cautious with food safety.

I prefer very fresh bread but we never get through a whole loaf in one day so I store bread in the freezer (an EB no-no!) from the day of purchase.

#23 FeralProudSwahili

Posted 10 February 2013 - 02:51 PM

Throwing out two day old bread is a disgraceful waste.

#24 Fenrir

Posted 10 February 2013 - 02:51 PM

Stick the bread in the freezer then it will not be a problem.

#25 Jembo

Posted 10 February 2013 - 02:59 PM

A small black spot, no problems will cut it off and eat the rest here, and if it is worse, then the chooks get it.
