    Default bread box question

    I've been starting to bake bread versus buying store bought. I started

    to think about bread boxes and wondered if anyone on the list uses

    one...if so, is it metal or wooden? I appreciate any thoughts about

    capacity, longevity of bread in box vs. plastic bag, metal or wooden

    storage, etc...



    Thanks,

    Eliz

    Default bread box question

    I have never been able to store my bread in my bread box, it usually

    gets moldy in there way to quickly. I use the bread box to hold my

    coupons, scissors, pens etc... and the bread and rolls go in the fridge

    during the summer (its very humid here) or on top of the fridge during

    the winter

    Default bread box question

    I am trying this and it is working so far.

    I got two loaves of Sara Lee bread free this weekend. Took all the bread out of the bag, put two slices per sandwich baggie, and put all the baggies back in the bread bag. Put the bread bag back in the freezer. Now when someone wants to pack a sandwich, or get toast, they take out two slices from the freezer and off they go. The rest stays frozen.


    So far, so good. (OH, and I am emphatic that the sandwich baggies need to come back home for washing / reuse).

    Default bread box question

    How do you defrost your bread that way? I usually pull mine out of the freezer and put it in the fridge to defrost, cause if you defrost on the counter it gets hard. So how would you defrost if you're only using 2 pieces and right away?

    If you toast them, they defrost naturally. I have been making them into

    sandwiches (untoasted) first thing in the morning and then I leave the

    Ziploc baggie with sandwich on the counter by the coffee pot for DH - he

    gets up about 20 minutes later to head for work. He puts it in his bag,

    heads to work, and I have no idea what he does with lunch at work, but he

    eats at lunchtime with no complaints. I think 2 slices defrost pretty fast.

    I save the wax/plastic bags that cereal comes in to store my homemade bread in. A chip clip on the open end and the bread stays fresh, not moldy or dried out longer.

    I use a wooden bread box, but bread gets ate around my house quickly so I don't know what would be best.
