How do you store bread and pastries correctly?

Bread and pastries are among the foods that are wasted the most.

To preserve bread longer:

  • Buy bread in one piece, not already sliced.
  • Store baked goods at room temperature in a bread box or baker’s bag to prevent them from drying out.
Tip: Bread can be frozen. Leftover bread can be stored in the freezer, it should not be thrown in the garbage directly. Bread that has already become hard can still be used for cooking, e.g. for the preparation of French Toast (Arme Ritter) .
