How to store sourdough bread
You should store your sourdough bread in a cotton bread bag or wrapped in a large tea towel so that the bread can breathe.
Place it in a cool place so it can maintain normal moisture levels. But don’t store it in the fridge. It will dry out and harden right away.
Don’t store your bread in a plastic bag. This will make it gain bacteria and mold quickly.
How long does sourdough bread last
If stored properly, traditional sourdough bread can last four to five days.
Can you freeze sourdough bread
The best storage option for sourdough bread is freezing. Freezing your sourdough bread will help preserve and extend its shelf life. There are two ways. You can freeze the whole loaf or slice it into smaller portions before freezing.
Allow the bread to cool completely. Any warmth will cause excess moisture inside your packaging. It’s great to preslice it so you can just grab the slices you need without thawing out the entire loaf.
Wrap it in aluminum foil and then place it in a freezer bag pressing out all the air to remove it. Then label and freeze. It will last at least 3 months in the freezer.
Remove the bread from the plastic bag and heat it up in a 200-degree oven in the foil to defrost it. Or you can thaw it on the counter overnight. You can also toast frozen bread and thaw it as it’s toasting.
I hope these sourdough bread recipes are the beginning of a new passion for you!
