#8 . Store Fresh Bread in the Freezer.
Unless I know that we will be eating all the bread I have made in one day, I let it cool to room temperature and then freeze it. With sandwich loaves, I go ahead and pre-slice. That way, when I want to make a sandwich or some toast, I can pull out only the bread that I need.
Go ahead and make your sandwich on frozen bread. It will surely be thawed and soft by the time you're ready to eat, especially if you're sending it in child's lunchbox.
You can also toast the bread straight from frozen. Either way, eating bread in a sandwich or as toast, the bread will taste as fresh as the day you made it for up to three weeks.
To freeze fresh bread, make sure it is completely cooled first. Then, slice (or not) and put in freezer bags. Press out all the air that you can and seal. I sometimes even use a straw to suck out even more air, like a person-powered Food Saver. I would not use a Food Saver machine to freeze bread as the amount of vacuum created can smash the bread.
