how do you store homemade bread?

lilaki | Aug 19, 2009 10:23 AM

hi chowhounds,

hubby and i have been baking our own bread pretty steadily this summer.

but we're running into a 'storage' problem. we don't have a bread box ... and don't really have space to go get one, either!

we used to wrap the bread (cooled) up in plastic wrap but this isn't very effective - wrap loses its stickiness and the bread gets hard quickly. plus, it's not very environmentally friendly. now, we're saving and reusing plastic bags that we happen to have from the bulk store or grocery store (although, we don't have much of those either as we're trying to use mesh bags for produce).

so, how do you store your homemade bread? any plastic-free tips?
