I always freeze bread and once frozen seal it using my food saver. It is just as fresh as first made.

Just read your post on bread from Taiwan. That sure brings back good memories. :D

I was stationed at Naha Air Base on Okinawa in 1966 and we would get the rice flour bread from Taiwan. That was something to die for.
I never did find out if in fact it was rice flour alone or mixed with wheat flour.
I would like to have a good recipe for bread made with rice flour. NO WHEAT FLOUR. I have a friend that is alegeric to any thing wheat and chocolate.

I always freeze my bread, whether I purchase it or bake it myself. I usually buy artisan breads which are not sliced, so I slice in half, freeze one half and keep the other half on the counter which I use. When the bread on the counter starts to get a little hardened, I put it in the food processor and make breadcrumbs, put them in a 'food saver' bag and then into the freezer for when I need them.

I use my bread machine to make just the dough because I like to finish it in baggette style whatever it is French or Italian. And I make two or three at a time and I place them in a freezer bag with one sheet of paper toweling (it absorbs the moisture) and put in the freezer for future use.
I don't know how long they would be good for because I use them up or give them away all of the time. When I run out I make more.

Thumbs up

I always freeze my bread. We actually like it better after it has been frozen.

Pete - I think you ought to turn this question into it's own thread- you'll get a lot more replies that way. I think MichaelinFTW and Oldcoot will probably be able to help you out with this question.

Pete here.

Well, thanks Babe, (and you are a Babe), but I am brand new at this and don't know how to do a "thread" right now. But I got some answers and they all said you can freeze bread. So I will. I thought that it would make it soggy or tough but apparently not.
I have other baking problems to discuss, so I am going to just read messages and follow some threads to see what I can find out about the issues I have some of which are: In making Cuban bread and or Spanish Pan, my crusts are too thick and tough. And boy do the bread thext day get hard! My goodness you have to eat them right away.
And I am not sure whether to introduce moisture (water vapor) into the oven prior to the bread. I don't know if I should bake at 400 or higher as some recommend and then turn it down after 10 minutes or at 350 all the way.
Or to slit the tops after tghe second rise or slit the tops when I put them on the trays for the second rise.
And...so many other little things which I see a different in the recipes I read. Lots of variations and I am experimenting.
Okay for now. Will wait for your rely.
Pete

I find that if I put cooled, fresh baked bread into the fridge or freeze it first and then thaw it, it will slice much easier. I used to make and bake 20 loaves a day for over 20 years for family and friends, in fact I need to bake up a bunch to take to my youngest daughter and her family this week.

Yes. Homemade or store bought - freezing will shorten it's life. It will dry out and stale faster after having been frozen. If, on the other hand, you make the dough, allow it to rise once and punch it down, then freeze the RAW dough .... when ready to bake it you thaw it out and allow it to rise the second time then bake it ... there will be less damage.
