Avoid stale or moldy bread by freezing your excess. Here's how:
For Short-Term Storage (less than three weeks): Wrap homemade bread in a bit of plastic wrap, foil or freezer paper after it has cooled completely; and freeze. Place store-bought bread directly in the freezer. The plastic bag that it came in will keep it protected for a few weeks.
For Long Term Storage (more than three weeks): Wrap bread tightly in plastic wrap. Then, wrap it again in foil or freezer paper. Write the date on your bread before sticking it in the freezer; then, try to use it within six months.
For Rolls and Buns: Place them inside a freezer bag, and seal tightly.
To Thaw: Simply place a loaf in the refrigerator over night.
Bread Freezing Tips:
- If it takes you a long time to eat a loaf of bread, slice your loaves before you put them in the freezer. This will allow you to pull out just what you need
- Save time by baking several loaves of bread at a time and freezing them. This four-loaf white bread freezes beautifully
