A Note on Sandwich Bread

Whereas a bread box is an ideal form of storage for homemade crusty breads, softer breads like sandwich bread is better being wrapped in a bag to keep in more moisture, therefore keeping the bread softer. For best storage, consider pre-slicing, wrapping securely in plastic wrap, and placing it in the freezer where it will last for up to three months.
