More tricks for bread
Stop teasing your mom for keeping loaves of bread in the freezer and defrosting them for special occasions as if they’re pies. She’s onto something. Bread maintains its consistency after being defrosted. You can store it whole, or pre-slice it, but just make sure to put wax paper between the slices if you go that direction – otherwise, they stick together when frozen. If you do keep your bread on the counters for immediate consumption, beware of where you place them. Heat and moisture are not friends of bread and can cause it to mold quickly, so don’t put fresh bread near heat-emitting appliances like the dishwasher or oven.
