All About Yeast Breads

Keeping Yeast Breads Fresh And Flavorful

Breads can become moldy or stale soon after baking. Proper storage is essential in preserving their freshness and flavor.

Cool breads completely before storing.

Store bread in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Or wrap it in foil or plastic wrap. Bread should be stored at room temperature no longer than 5 days.

Refrigerate bread to slow the growth of mold. Refrigeration is necessary, especially for moist breads or during hot, humid weather. However, refrigeration won’t preserve freshness and can cause bread to dry out. To store bread for a longer period of time, freeze it.
