Keeping Homebaked Breads Fresh


I discovered a great way to keep my fresh baked breads from drying out while recycling plastic at the same time!

The grocer had the large Earthbound Farm spinach containers on sale the other week.  It was a great sale so I stocked up knowing I could blanch and freeze the spinach for baking Spinach Bread, quiche or adding to my breakfast sandwich.  After the containers were emptied, I couldn't bring myself to toss them away.  The lids held well and the container was the length of a small loaf of bread.  The container is made with a thin plastic that can crumple easy, but it's not so flimsy that it's annoying.  As you can see from the photo above, they hold up to stacking even filled with delicious Buttermilk Bread loaves.

Caring for these plastic container is easy.
Hand wash with hot soapy water, rinse, and dip into a bleach water solution for up to 2 minutes, then allow to air dry.
