Since our breads DO NOT CONTAIN ANY PRESERVATIVES, we always recommend eating them the same day, while freezing any extra. Here are some tips for keeping bread successfully: Freeze the bread while it is as fresh as possible. Bread that goes in the freezer old will come out old. If freezing any longer than a day, it is best to put the bread into a plastic bag. We sell our freezer bags in the store for 5 cents a bag! Slicing down a whole loaf at a time and freezing it is great. This way, you can pull out as many slices as you need at a time and leave the rest frozen. Thaw bread at room temperature, out of the plastic bag. Bread thawed in a bag retains moisture built up through condensation and becomes soggy. For extra crispness, pop the bread in a 400 degree oven for a few minutes until crispy. Never refrigerate bread; that range of temperature will speed up the staling process.
