Don't Let Your Fresh Bread in Butte Go Stale

As soon as you smell the scent of fresh bread, your taste buds go into overdrive and you just want to eat all that you can! However, our taste buds and our stomach are not always in complete sync. For times like these, Great Harvest of Butte, Mt has some advice on how to store your bread to keep it fresh and tasty for longer.

How Long Can You Resist?

The first decision that you need to make is how long you can resist eating your fresh bread. If you don't plan on eating it straight away, your best choice is to take home a full loaf and slice it as you use it.

Avoid the Cold

Despite the advice that you may have grown up with, storing your bread in the refrigerator can reduce its freshness due to the cold temperatures affecting the starch inside your bread.

A Traditional Bread Box

The best place to store your bread for you and your family to enjoy over the next couple of days is in a standard bread box at room temperature. While your kitchen counter is likely the most convenient place, be sure that it is out of direct sunlight. Additionally, instead of using plastic wrap around your bread, use a clean tea-towel.

Long-Life Storage

If you purchase your bread in advance and need to store it for a few days, the freezer is going to be the place to put it. If you do choose to store it in your freezer, once you remove it, warm it up and try to eat it within two hours for the freshest taste and texture.
