Hi, what do you use to keep your bread fresh once baked? I bake 3 loaves a week and don't want to keep using cling film or foil. Thankssmile

I too use a tea towel to wrap my bread! Seems to do the job!

Thank you, I've done just that. It only lasts about 24 hours before it's been devoured so a tea towel should do the job. I've since looked online and Lakeland and amazon do proper bread bags (not plastic) and I might invest in one.

I've been eyeing up bread tins too. I just do bloomers at the moment but the slices are too big for the toaster. I'm debating g the wisdom of two smaller tins instead of one big one. What do you use?

I use the big plastic bag that panetonne comes in. You should have asked the question a month ago.grin

I tend to just make round loaves in a cast iron casserole dish. But two smaller loaves could work! That's what my friend does

It might last longer that way. I need a better bread knife too. Mine isn't very sharp and I cut thick slices. I love thick sliced bread with butter and good quality jam. I'm out of jam otherwise I'd be eating that right now for a late supper.
Bread is so simple yet such a pleasure.

I store home made bread in a large poly bag that I do not seal. Let the air move around it otherwise the bag will cause it to sweat and you will then get mold growing.

I freeze mine, although for a couple of days it keeps ok in a bread mug (large ceramic bread pot thing - I inherited it from my GM)
