Buletten mit Brot und Berliner Weisse in Berlin – how-to auf Deutsch: http://www.chefkoch.de/rs/s0/berliner+buletten/Rezepte.html

last year I bought some kartoffelsemmel from a traditional German bakery in Munich and brought it back to the Netherlands with me. I forgot to eat them for several days but didnt put them in the fridge, just inside a kitchen cupboard. When I checked them, they have become sooooo hard that none of my ikea knives could cut them. Eventually i threw them out since they were no longer chewable anyway. So, how should we store German bread and what to do when they’ve become hard af?

Hi there. That would be normal. You don’t store fresh bread rolls from the bakery, you eat them right away. 😉Usually on the same day, maaaybe the next day, but then they already might need to be toasted. But seriously, the point of fresh rolls from the bakery in Germany is that they have no preservatives and other artificial ingredients and chemicals in them that keep the “factory” kind of bread/rolls fresh for ages. They are bought to be eaten fresh the same day. Do not put them in the fridge. Just keep them in their original packaging in room temp, ideally in a Brotkasten (bread box). (If you put them in plastic overnight, they will stay softer but will get kind of rubbery.) When they get too hard, they can still be used to make breadcrumbs/panko to be used in cooking recipes. All in all it’s best to just buy as many as you can eat in a day or two and go back for fresh ones regularly. 🙂

Die Brötchen = bread rolls (plural). The crescent on top is “das Hörnchen” in German (“little horn”) or we just say “der Croissant”, like in French. Das Meerkornbrötchen = multi seed roll (my personal favorite), das Sesambrötchen = sesame roll, das Mohnbrötchen = poppyseed roll. If you’re a tourist and can’t remember all that, just point and nod but DO NOT miss trying delicious German bread rolls at a German corner bakery. 🙂
