Short Term Storage

Longer Term Storage

If you'll be keeping your bread for more than a few days, seal the loaf in a freezer-proof bag. The bread will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Thawing Frozen Bread

Thawing frozen bread will take about 2 to 3 hours at room temperature. If you slice your bread before freezing, you can toast it straight out of the freezer. To warm bread, wrap loaf in foil and heat in a 350-degree oven for 15 to 30 minutes. Unwrap bread in the last 5 minutes to produce a crisp crust. Thaw frozen bread thoroughly before warming in oven.
