So--I've been embarking on a home breadmaking adventure. We're a small household--only two. My problem is storage. I haven't got a store of store got bread bags, and we can take 5 or more days to go through a loaf. I have been defaulting to large Ziplocs, which works--ok. Those bags seem expensive for the task at hand, and if, as sometimes happens, the bread gets mouldy in the ziploc, I am not comfortable reusing the bag. I wonder if a bread box would do better for me? Would the bread still have to be wrapped in plastic if I store it in there?
I'd be grateful for any suggestions or advice.
