I bake my own bread. I’ve been doing so for nearly a year now, and I almost never eat store-bought bread anymore. That being said, homemade bread doesn’t keep very well at all what with the intense lack of preservatives. So I’ve been looking and looking for ways to make bread keep longer, yet for some reason I had never even bothered looking in to a traditional breadbox.
I had been operating under the idea that bread staling was a drying out process and so my experiments in longevity had been based on this. I had no idea what was really going on, and all of a sudden breadboxes make so much more sense now that I know how bread staling really works. I think I know what my next Amazon purchase is going to be.
