When you catch a good deal on bread, buy extra and put it in the freezer. When you store it at room temp, it is more likely to get stale or moldy. When stored in the refrigerator, bread becomes stale and picks up odors from other foods. The freezer is the preferred place for longer term storage because the bread won’t stale and won’t mold. If stored for more than a few weeks, though, you’ll want to be mindful of freezer burn. To prevent freezer burn, double bag the bread by using a 2 gallon sized zip top bag.
