Where does your bread live?

Postby oostevens » Wed Sep 19, 2007 5:43 pm

Ok, here is the thing, when we buy bread, it lives in our cupboard. But it doesnt seem to last long, and i dont know why that is.

Do we need to buy a bread bin? or a bread container? or is there somewhere else or some other way to store it so it stays fresh longer?

Where do you guys store your bread? and how fresh does it stay? how long does it seem to last?

Or is it just white bread that goes bad quicker. Cos i am sure when we buy multigrain or soy & linseed that it doesnt seem to grow mould as fast as white bread.

wellll....many shop breads have preservatives to make it keep longer so if you buy a bread with no preservatives it will go off quicker. When I buy bread (shop bread) the bloke generally only goes through 1/2 loaf in a week (we keep it in one of those bread bins with the roller door thing) and it seems to be fine - I often freeze half the loaf. My sourdoughs keep for a week easy, but the heavier they are the better. For example, the 8 grain wholemeal loaf is still nice and moist, not all dry and hard by weeks end whereas the white or 60/40 white/wholemeal is generally a bit stale. I tend to freeze half my loaves too. But these don't have preservatives and are stored in a brown paper bag, not plastic (cause that's what they're sold in at the market) in the bread bin.

So - generally our bread keeps a week just stored in a bread bin. Heaver breads last longer, preserved bread lasts longer

if i buy anything other than white bread it goes in the freezer and i use it as i need it cos mick and heidi dont like anything other than white bread. however ive been buying HALF loaves from our local bakery so i get half a white loaf and half a brown loaf and theres no wastage. usually our white bread lives on top of the microwave :P

most of mine goes straight in the freezer - i mostly use it for toast & it's only a couple of times a week so it wouldn't last in the cupboard. if i'm going to use it fairly quickly i often put it in the fridge anyways - especially if the weather is warmer.

i can't comment on white vs non-white because i don't buy white bread! sorry!

Soy and linseed bread remains moist for quite a while... So there is basically no need to put it in the freezer if you are using it so often. You'll be fine! We buy our bread Monday and finish the last of it on Sunday... It lasts - no problem.

I buy my breads from Bakers Delight and yes it goes off a little quicker. I also was told to store it in a big tupperware container and it keeps longer because of the good seal. I love tupperware!

Sorry, I should contribute more.

I buy cheap, coles wholemeal bread (because they're cheap and I'm poor). I buy two loave and stick one in the freezer. I only buy multigrain when they're on special (under 3 dollars). The freezer doesn't alter the taste.
