I've noticed some persons on the board posting that it's inconvenient to have frozen bread rather than (the old) freah kind, and saying that it's really hard to pry the pieces apart.

Just wanted to say I have always kept the loaf in the door of the freezer where it's not quite as cold, rather than inside the freezer, and the pieces come apart really easily and they thaw very fast. Just about 1 minute in the oven at 350 and they're ready for a sandwich. It's almost as convenient as having the fresh loaf for me.

Hope this helps someone out!

I have been putting them in the microwave for about 30 seconds and boom, warm soft bread!

    It needs to be about 20% cooler.

That's brilliant! I'll see if this doesn't help save me some worry about how many fingers I'll have left after prying a few slices off. I could add years to my life avoiding the stress.

If you slide a butter knife between the slices and then twist the knife, it'll come right apart.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

While in theory your suggestion is great Bart, in practice I find it doesn't work out so well for me. You are making the assumption I'll be able to get a knife between the slices. So far every loaf I have purchased seems to have some sort of magical seal preventing me from sliding the knife in. :lol:

You could just leave the bread on the counter in an airtight container. That's where mine is. I bought it unfrozen why would I freeze it.

Mine goes stale/moldy really fast if I don't keep it at least in the fridge. Freezer is better if we're not going to be eating it within a few days.

I think you're talking about a different brand of bread. I'm referring to the brand that comes frozen, from the freezer section of the store by the pizzas and such, and on the package it specifically says, "Keep Frozen".

There are some brands of room-temperature bread that come from the regular shelf, but I always have bought the frozen kind.

I buy many loaves and put them in the freezer, as I am about 2 hours away from the nearest whole foods. But, I take one loaf out at a time and put it in the refrigerator. It will last up to 2 weeks in the fridge.

that sounds like a good idea. I had 5 loaves in my freezer end of Jan., now down to one. I can usually pry them apart with my fingers, though. I get Rudi's.

The udis I have I bought unfrozen at whole foods. The package says keep in the freezer OR on the counter.
