I have been feeling a bit off lately and have been falling behind on my posts. My brain and mood seem to be on indefinite freeze. So, I thought I’d do a tip post instead.
This method applies to store bought pitas and homemade but leftover pitas. The thing about pitas is that you don’t want it crisp on the exterior, it has to be soft but steaming hot. Hot on the inside pockets as well when you reheat them. So what do you do? Microwave them? Yeah….well, personally I find that to be a bit dry. But here’s a tip I learned, I think it was from Jamie’s 30 minute meals series but I forgot which one, you can reheat your pitas, make sure they’re warm all the way through and still have that soft texture you’re looking for in a pita, even if you find when you buy the store-bought ones, they are already a little tough.
4. Cut and stuff with whatever you fancy! This is some of the leftover, yummy Guinness stew.
I have used this method several times and it really works, it even works with French bread that has gone hard and stale, if for whatever reason you need to make it soft for a recipe, you can use this method.
