Keeping Bread Fresh

Remember!  There are no preservatives, additives, dextrose or other ingredients to prolong the shelf like of your freshly made goods, so below are a few tips in making it last, unless you eat it!

Here’s how you can prolong the life of your sourdoughs, focaccia and bagels when you first bring your bread home.

If you receive a fresh, hot boule or sandwich loaf, please let cool completely as gluten-free breads have a tendency to be gummy when they are cut when still warm. Bagels, Baguette and Focaccia are fine pretty much after they are baked.

In the chance you don’t devour it on the way home, store cut side down on a cutting board with clean tea towel placed over, or store in your brown bag you received it in for up to 48 hours.  I don’t refrigerate these breads as they have a tendency to become hard and not enjoyable.

After 48 hrs, slice your bread for convenience and freeze for up to 3 months.  All of the breads freeze really well and can be popped right in the toaster from the freezer or thawed first.

Prolonging the shelf life of your Keto Buns

Keto buns including the Hamburger and Hot Dog buns can be stored in their bag for a couple days on the counter, 5 days in the refrigerator or frozen.  These freeze really well. 

Cupcakes refrigerate really well for up to 5 days before freezing.

Cookies keep up to 5 days before freezing

Crackers keep in their craft bag for up to 5-7 days, then if you would like to transfer them to an air-tight container, they can stay pretty crisp for a couple of weeks.  (I find it hard to keep any crackers around to last this long)
