Buyer's guide

Use fresh on the day of purchase. If you’re buying rolls for use 1-2 days later, or for freezing, choose those with the lightest coloured crust and then re-bake before serving. The light crust colour usually indicates that the rolls have only been baked for a short time. Reheat rolls in a very hot oven for only a few minutes, to avoid drying out the crumb.

Preparation

Rolls can require less time in the second prove, so they are a good way to get your bread dough baked in time for dinner.
