Reusable Parchment Paper
Table of Contents
Hey there, friends! Today, let’s talk about indispensable kitchen tools. I recently started a new series called My Favorite (Kitchen) Things, but unfortunately, it didn’t last long. However, there’s one kitchen tool that I absolutely can’t live without – reusable parchment paper.
Why Reusable Parchment Paper is a Game-Changer
Reusable parchment paper is a must-have for any kitchen. Unlike traditional parchment paper rolls, which can be quite pricey, reusable parchment paper can save you a lot of money in the long run. Initially, it may seem a bit expensive, typically costing around $6.00 to $7.00 per sheet. However, considering its reusability, these sheets are worth every penny.
The Magic of Reusable Parchment Paper
Using reusable parchment paper is incredibly easy. Simply use it just like you would use regular parchment paper. After use, wash it with warm soapy water and hang it up to dry. These sheets are incredibly durable and can last for years. I’ve been using a few sheets regularly for three to four years, and they are still as good as new.
When it comes to baking artisan bread, reusable parchment paper is a game-changer. Instead of using a pizza peel dusted with cornmeal, I simply place a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet, sprinkle it with cornmeal, and place my loaves on top. This way, I can easily transfer multiple loaves to the oven at once.
Cleaning up after making granola is also a breeze with reusable parchment paper. I line a jellyroll pan with the sheet, spray it with olive oil, and then spread the granola on top. Once baked and cooled, I can effortlessly lift the parchment paper with the granola and crumble it into a bowl for bagging.
Additionally, I’ve found that using a parchment sheet below oozy baked goods, like caramel monkey bread or juicy fruit pie, can save me from scrubbing a messy cookie sheet. The parchment sheet is much easier to clean.
Get Your Reusable Parchment Paper Today
If you enjoy baking, you’ll definitely want to get your hands on some reusable parchment paper. You can easily find them in a kitchen store or order them online. Personally, I’ve purchased mine from Amazon.com and occasionally found great deals, like buy two, get one free.
I know you’re clever, Gentle Reader, and I’m sure you can come up with even more ingenious ways to utilize these handy sheets. I’ve even used them to keep my seeded flats moist while waiting for germination. All I do is sow the seeds, moisten them, and then place the parchment sheets on top. This way, the flats stay perfectly hydrated until the seeds sprout.
