Where should I store bread?

Bread Boxes a Thing of the Past

Do you use a breadbox? Have you ever gotten a slice of bread out, only to realize there's mold growing on it? That's enough to ruin one's appetite.

Mold grows well in dark and slightly damp places. If you live in the Southeast where there's a lot of humidity you're in the right environment for mold growth. Put your bread in a breadbox and you've got a mold incubator.

Instead, keep your bread wrapped in a plastic bag or airtight container and eat within 2-3 days. If it will take you longer to eat your loaf, you may consider freezing the extra portions until you need them. Better to be safe than worry about those fuzzy gray/white/green spots on your bread.

No mention is made of refridgeration. All my life, I have kept bread in plastic bags in the fridge...I used to live in the southeast. Not only is the humidity bad there, so are the roaches.
