Keeping and storing bread

Bread always tastes best when very fresh. Just a few tips can help you keep your bread fresh for longer and freeze it easily too.

How can bread stay fresh longer?

Bread is best kept in a dry place at room temperature. To make sure it does not dry out, it should be wrapped. The best way to keep bread is to store it with the cut surface facing downwards on a wooden board and wrapped in a clean cloth or to wrap it in a cloth and place it in a bread bin, preferably one made of wood. Packaged bread should be stored in its original packaging. Bread with a crispy crust and bread rolls should not be kept in a container as they will otherwise become soft. Generally: the higher the whole wheat flour content, the less time the bread will stay fresh. White bread only keeps for up to three days, while rye bread keeps for up to ten days.

Storing bread in the freezer

Bread is generally very suitable for freezing. It is best to wrap bread in foil and place it in the freezer while still fresh. You can either freeze whole loaves or slice the bread so that you can thaw out individual slices later as needed. To thaw the bread, you can either place it in the kitchen at room temperature until it is no longer frozen or moisten it with a little water and bake it in the oven at around 200 °C for approximately five minutes.
