Separate and Turn Bread Slices To Keep Fresh

I live alone in central Mexico. As our "rainy season" has started again, I was fretting about my bread. The best I can buy is Orowheat sliced. I can only buy it once a month in the nearby big town. I had the bright idea to separate the slices, just like we do here with tortillas.


Be sure to change the touching face of each slice. I store the bread in its bags with ALL AIR PUSHED OUT, twisted and the whole thing put in a large, air-tight storage container. Works like a charm. Sometimes I do it when I start/open the bread and sometimes when the loaf is half gone. Both methods work suffice for the month or untill it's all used.

REMEMBER: Air is the enemy of your stored foods. Always push as much air OUT as you can before sealing any bag or container.

My Helgas mixed grain bread comes in a plastic bag container, should I leave it in the soft plastic container?

My comment is really about defrosting a loaf of Sandwich bread. When I get it out of the freezer I hang it by the tip of the opening, on a coffee cup hook. Leave it there until it is defrosted. The edges doesn't get hard at all.


Just as if were bought. I have done this for years. I buy a quality brand and when it's on sale I buy 4 or 5 loaves to freeze. There are two, sometimes three here at home.

There is just the two of us.
I have found that putting the bread in the microwave keeps it fresh longer ...up to ten days ... & no mold.!!!!

I use the same method, then I have also used a plastic straw ( which can be washed and re-used) great if you have something in a ziplock bag that you don't want squished, getting the air out. Many years ago I heard a scientific conversation on the telly ( in the background) that got my attention. I was always throwing out things that had been opened, because of either mould, or just not looking so good anymore.


So his tip was if you turn the jars and if possible creamy salad dressings in bottles upside down, they will not have the problem anymore. Yes it looks strange when I open the fridge, but anything that saves money and wasted food,is fine by me. All the best and stay safe in lockdown.
