Make bread last longer with these tips.


What’s the best way to store bread to keep it fresh longer?

  Bread is best stored in its original packaging (tightly closed with a clip) at room temperature.

However, in warm and humid areas, mold grows quickly so it’s better to freeze it (it will keep for up to three months). To warm, defrost bread at room temperature or wrap in aluminum foil and heat in a preheated 450ºF oven for 5 to 10 minutes. Leave the bread inside the foil to cool before eating.

Storing bread in the refrigerator is a big no-no. The temperature inside a refrigerator actually makes bread go stale faster—a day inside the fridge is equivalent to three days at room temperature!
