I bought a loaf of Dempsters' bread for lunches this week.
Gord said last night that he really likes this bread and that he ate the crust while he was making his lunch for today.
My response was, of course, he did since it's on the outside of a slice of bread and I've never known him to cut it off.
After further discussion, I discovered that he meant the end of the loaf of bread.
I've always called it "the heel".
Gord had never heard it called that and thought I was nuts.
So I Googled it.
According to the Free Dictionary, one of the meanings of "heel" is ... one of the crusty ends of a loaf of bread.
So there, Gord!!!
Is it just an east coast Canada thing (I'm originally from Nova Scotia)?
What do you call the end of a loaf of bread?
