how do you store your sourdough?
I have read here and elsewhere that freezing bread keeps it the most fresh, but what about that loaf (or loaves) that you are munching on for the week??
There are only two of us in my household so we usually go through 1 1/2 to 2 loaves a week. My delicious sourdough that I baked last Tuesday started to get a little mold on it on Friday :-( Based on what you all have said, that was a bit early for sourdough. I should say that I travel back and forth each week from MA to NYC, staying in both places half and half. I put my 1/2 of my sourdough loaf in a ziplock plastic bag for the trip, and that was clearly not where it wanted to be. That is when it devleoped mold.
In MA I have a terracotta bread bin with a wood cutting board top and it seems to work OK. I think I heard someone here say tha they put their bread cut side down on the countertop and then cover with a towel??
i'd love to hear how everyone keeps their sourdough fresh and long lasting, (and other breads for that matter) - the loves that don't go in the freezer.
