Preventing moldy bread

Caviar | Jun 26, 2002 11:41 AM

I eat bread relatively infrequently, but when I do, I like to have it fresh. I also very much like having the right kind of bread (hot dog rolls for hot dogs, sandwich buns for hamburgers, sliced loaves for toast, etc...).

Since it's hard to buy just enough for one sitting, I find that I often have three or four packages lying around at any given time if I want to have a chance of having what I want on hand when I want it. The problem is that it doesn't keep. If I leave it out in a cupboard or on the counter, it gets moldy in a few days. If I put it in the fridge, it gets stale in a few days. I really don't have room in my freezer, but I've also never been happy with that either.

Does a breadbox help? Will it prevent mold growth? Is one kind better than another? Do I keep the bread in the bags in the breadbox or loose?

How do you all keep bread?
