Tips for Storing Bread

Plan ahead for bread! As you probably know, our bakery’s homemade bread is made from scratch daily with only the best ingredients and no additives or preservatives. Along with making our loaves delicious, that also makes it all the more important to store them correctly (in case you don’t finish it all at once). Rise to the occasion with these best practices for bread storage!

By the Slice: Store your loaf cut-side down on your cutting board, slicing additional slices as needed. By leaving it cut-side down, you're protecting the vulnerable insides from getting dried out, while the crust maintains its integrity. It should be fine for several days like this. 

Bread Blunders: Avoid these floury faux pas to keep your bread as fresh as possible as long as possible.

  • Don't store it in a plastic bag.
  • Don't store it in the refrigerator.
  • Don't let it sit out without the cut-side down.

Freeze! If you'd like to make your loaf last for weeks or even months, first cut it into slices, then wrap the whole thing in plastic and put it in a freezer. This way it can be enjoyed one slice at a time over several months.
