Keep your favourite loaf in tip-top condition with our simple hints below.

Bread should be stored at room temperature in a plastic bag, bread bag, or well ventilated bread bin to prevent the bread from drying out. Bread should not go in the fridge or it will dry out.

All our breads are suitable to freeze and can be stored in the freezer for up to four months. Just put the bread in a freezer bag, remove as much air as possible and seal the bag. If the bread is sliced you can take pieces as you need them to toast or alternatively, to thaw the whole loaf open the bag and leave the bread to defrost naturally in the packaging.

To revive the crust on bread, pre-heat an oven to 400˚F/200˚C. Place the bread on a rack in the oven. Heat the bread for 6 to 8 minutes. This will gently warm the bread and make the crust lovely and crunchy again. Microwaving is not recommended for reviving bread.
