So you received your lovely box of bread. Now what?!?!
We here at Free Bread have noticed that there are two camps of bread buyers in the US: People who leave bread on the counter and people who store bread in the fridge. We are in the former camp, which is especially challenging with the limited counter space afforded us New York City dwellers.
- When you receive your order, remove whatever breads you think will be consumed in two days and place them in a plastic bag. If you prefer your breads stored in the fridge, you will get an extra 3-6 days of freshness, but the texture will change slightly. By all means, freeze the rest - Free Bread lasts 4-6 months in the freezer.
- When you're ready to enjoy, you may thaw at room temp, or place directly into a 350 degree oven or toaster oven for 5-7 minutes, depending on your toast preference. For the extra-hungry, pop the rolls in the the microwave for 20 seconds and enjoy, and for a nicer crust, follow this step with 2 minutes at 350 degrees in the toaster or conventional oven.
