I buy most of my bread at Trader Joe’s. The bread is preservative-free, which is great, until I discover fuzzy green spots growing on the slices three days after I bring the loaf home.
Then I discovered from Mom a wonderful trick that will ward off moldiness and keep the bread good way past expiration date: freezing bread.
All I do is toss the bread up in the freezer. That’s it. No need for special packaging, bags, or enclosures. I don’t freeze my bread for long (a week or two, max), so I’m not worried about freezer burn.
Freezing bread is so easy and convenient, and also saves me money now that I can finish every loaf I buy.
