It's no secret that bread is a delicious treat that can be enjoyed at any time, however it's prone to become soggy, stale and even moldy after a few days. For this reason at Great Harvest in Kirkwood we created the following post containing useful advice on storing your bread.

Avoid the Refrigerator

Most people store their bread in their refrigerator which is a common mistake, as the moisture and temperature in your appliance will make it stale three times faster. Another thing you should avoid is microwaving your bread.

Room Temperature

Keeping your bread at room temperature is recommended to keep it fresh; keep in mind that you should wrap it in plastic and store it in a dry place away from the sunlight. Don't forget that you can also wrap your bread in aluminium paper and heat it in your oven for a few minutes to refresh it.

Freezing Your Loaf

If you won't be eating your bread in a long time, freezing your bread is a great option and it will keep it in good condition for up to three months. Just remember that you should wrap your bread in a plastic bag and slice it before putting it in your freezer so you don't have to wait until it thaws.  

Storing your bread is relatively simple and these effective ideas will keep this delicious staple food in perfect condition for longer time, so you don't have to discard it. Also, remember that stale bread is also perfect for certain dishes, as it provides them with the required texture.
