I'm new to The Fresh Loaf but not new to bread baking. Started 40 years ago with the Tassajara method. Am now quickly becoming a Lahey and Reinhart devotee (but I kind of miss the therapy of all that kneading).
I love the crustiness I get with the Jim Lahey style bread. But if I store in in a plastic bag, the 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?
