Tried this Mother Earth News recipe - very similar to the Polydough concept. Super easy and super delish!  And I now have enough dough in the fridge to make fresh bread for at least a week.

Hey bread makers!  How do you recommend storing the bread once made?  Trying to stay away from plastic if possible - do you just leave it out in the air before cutting?  How about after cutting?  Paper bag?

I made some cloth bags similar to this:



And I love this for slicing the bread:



The easiest for me is to slice the bread one slice at a time then stand it up on my cutting board with the cut side down:

I have a big ceramic pot with a lid that is intended as bread storage (not sure if it came with the house or I took it from my parents' house).
If I know that we will not eat the bread in one or two days max, I cut it up and freeze half of the loaf. As I make sourdough bread and add rye and often potato to the dough it keeps fresh longer time.

I also freeze our bread. My husband eats it, not me, and if he starts to slow his pace I freeze and take out half a loaf at a time (I generally make 2+ loaves at once). I save paper bags from when we do occasionally buy bread and like to store it in them while it is out on the counter.

permaculture is a more symbiotic relationship with nature so I can be even lazier. Read tiny ad:
