Sippets

Remove the four corner crusts, cut along the length of a loaf of bread, then cut across into very thin triangular shapes, approximately 2mm thick. Arrange on a baking sheet, taking care not to overlap, and place in a slightly warm oven to dry out and colour slightly golden on each side. Alternatively, they may be toasted under a salamander grill set at moderate heat; this method requires constant attention.
