    Is his name Andy Cap?
    Only thing I use those for is to put them with the brown sugar to soften it.

    The good news is that employers will think you’re great because you’re the end of the loaf.

    “During the 1800’s, North Carolina produced vast quantities of tar, pitch, and turpentine. There is a story that, in one of the fiercest battles of the Civil War, some forces supporting the Noth Carolina troops were driven from the field. The North Carolinians remained and fought it out alone. Later, the other regiment geeted them by asking, ‘Any more tar down in the Old North State, boys?’ ‘Not a bit,’ was the answer. ‘Old Jeff’‘s bought it all up.’ ‘Is that so? What’s he going to do with it?’ ’He’s going to put it on you’uns heels to make you stick better in the next fight.’ When Confederate General Robert E. Lee heard of the incident, he is supposed to have said, ‘God bless the Tarheel boys.’ Ever since, North Carolina has been called the Tarheel State, and its people Tarheels. "

    As far as I know, “Old Jeff” is the nickname the North Carolinians gave their commander General Joseph E. (Eggleston) Johnston.

    I always skip the ends of the loafs then make a sandwich with the two end slides. Does that make it a Heelwich?

    I always dig out of the middle of the loaf. That’s where the good bread is.
    You should leave the heels until last. They keep the rest of the bread from drying out. (Or so I was told).

    Matthew 20:16 “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

    Just stay away from the thyme, as it wounds all heels.

    Maybe he wouldn’t feel like such a heel if it weren’t for his ill-bread family . . . ☻

    I save up my heels to make bread crumbs. But that doesn’t make them crummy, honest!
