How do you store your crusty bread?

Paper, plastic? foil? If you made extra bread, do you freeze them?

I'm glad this was asked.
I have a hard time figuring out how to store a regular homemade loaf.

Now myself I just leave it on the counter, cut side down. Won't keep forever though, better eaten in a couple days, IMO.

We have a wooden bread bin. I make 6 loaves at a time and keep one or two out. The rest go into the freezer. As for the others, if a loaf of bread last more than a day or two, it is truely amazing.

yes, I freeze extra loaves, or extra of any loaf. I find if I store the bread wrapped in a towel the crust gets too hard, and if I put the loaf in a plastic bag, the crust gets too soft. So I do a dance between the two. Wrap in cloth one day, stick all in a plastic bag the next day, back out of the bag the next. Always out on the counter.

What I did is wrap the loaf in freezer paper then put that in a zip lock bag, and squeese all the air out I could. Tomorrow I will see how it worked.

I keep it in a plastic bag in a basket bin in my peninsula (like an island, but next to the wall). When I want to re-crisp it, I put it in a 350* oven directly on the rack for 10 minutes. And I freeze extra, wrapped in foil and then in a ziplock freezer bag.

I'm with you on that one, Smoke King.

The best way to store crusty bread is in a paper bag.

I've done that, using the bag it came in (when storebought), and it ends up as hard as a rock ...
