Keeping and serving the bread:
We recommended storing our bread at room temperature in this bag. Although we make the bread without chemical preservatives, the natural starters we use to leaven the dough help the bread remain fresh for several days, depending on its shape and size. If desired you may flash the bread in a hot oven to refresh it. (Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F, set the loaf directly on the oven rack, and bake two to five minutes. For larger loaves, lower the temperature and increase the time. Allow to cool before serving.) The bread also freezes well. Seal the loaf in an airtight plastic bag, then wrap well with aluminum foil. Thaw the bread at room temperature in its wrapping, then flash in a hot oven as described above. When all else fails - and all good bread dries out sooner or later - make toast!
