Quick Answers

 

 

How should bread be stored?


Store bread at room temperature in a cool, dry place. Refrigeration speeds up staling; however, in hot, humid weather, bread kept more than 2-3 days should be refrigerated to retard mold growth. Refer to MP556, Storing Food in the Freezer, for information on how to freeze bread. High-moisture breads, like English muffins and brown-and-serve rolls, should be stored in the refrigerator. Keep hard-crust breads, like French bread, at room temperature and use within 1 to 2 days of purchase.
