keeping it crusty
I love the crustiness I get with the Jim Lahey style bread. But if I store in in a plastic bag, it crust goes all soft. How can I keep it out on the counter for 3-5 days? Someone suggested keeping it in a paper bag. Anyone ever had luck with that?
By the way, I'm new to The Fresh Loaf but not new to bread baking. Started 40 years ago with the Tassajara method. Am now quickly become a Laher and Reinhart devotee (but I kind of miss the therapy of all that kneading).
