Clear Flour Bread | Storage Guidelines
Most of our loaves will last several days on the counter in a paper, fabric or plastic bag, or in a breadbox.
Your loaf will stay fresher if you slice as you go. Store your loaf cut-side down.
A plastic bag will help keep your bread from drying out, but will soften the crust.
If storing your bread in a plastic bag, we recommend toasting your slices for best texture and flavor.
Make sure you don't see any condensation forming on the inside of the bag; the excess moisture will cause the bread to mold.
Leaving the bag open at the top (to get a little air) will help prevent this.
If you won't go through a whole loaf in 2–3 days, freezing is the best way to preserve your bread.
The fresher your bread is when you freeze it, the better your results will be.
If your bread is still warm, make sure it is fully cool before freezing it.
Slice some – or all – of your loaf and wrap it well (a heavy-duty freezer bag works best).
When you are ready to enjoy your bread, put a slice directly into the toaster.
Want to freeze a whole loaf of bread, a baguette, or rolls?
Go right ahead! When ready to eat, thaw it overnight on the counter, without opening the bag.
Before serving, refresh in the toaster or low temp oven (250–300°F).
Check to make sure your bread has warmed all the way through;
it should take about 5–10 minutes, depending on the size of the bread.
What if you left your bread out a little too long and it's dried out?
Preheat your oven to 300°F.
Run your bread under running water to get the outside of it wet.
Put your bread in the oven, either on a baking sheet or directly on the rack, and heat until
the outside is crisp; about 5–10 minutes, depending on the size of the bread.
We do not recommend refrigerating or microwaving bread.
