Ours seems to keep ok in the wooden bin Rose. But in Tenerife we keep it in the fridge.

Freezer :-D

Freezer for me too. OH eats different breads according to where he is in his training schedule. I eat a multigrain or olive bread for sandwiches but XXX thick for toast.

We can't eat it fast enough before it goes mouldy :-(

I knew most would say fridge lol, but I don't have room in mine unfortunately :-) ( and right now can't afford a bigger fridge, even if I could fit one in lol)


Thelma Report 29 Sep 2012 13:49

Transfer only part of loaf to fridge.

i have 3 breadmatching bins and not a slice of bread ever goes in them
one is for the guarantees of good i have bought
one is for all those things that have to go into a safe place and always loose
and junk finds it way into the other one
you know the junk you may need oneday but never do

the bread is kept in the wrapper on the work top
and i always have a spare loaf or two in the freezer :-D

Not a contentious thread? How do you even know I eat bread, not saying I don't but you don't know I do.

I think you should delete this thread, post haste !!!!



Janet Report 29 Sep 2012 14:03

Freezer then microwave or toaster-jl


Merlin Report 29 Sep 2012 14:09

:-D at Lynda lol,now a 'what bread's best' thread would be contentious, so many variations to opt for

Brown, white, sliced, unsliced, tin, bloomers, cottage, milk loaf, soda bread, tiger bread, rye bread, malt loaf..... toasted, fried, cut into croutons, home made, shop bought..... :-S


~Lynda~ Report 29 Sep 2012 14:31

Easy Rose that just too contentious, fancy saying croutons, tut tut !

It is Jo, I have a thread about it, you going?


Merlin Report 29 Sep 2012 14:32

You forgot the "Bread of Heaven" Rose. :-D :-D :-D
