Tips for storing sourdough

Tips for storing sourdough bread

Room temperature

Up to 5 days for loaves, up to 3 days for baguettes

Sourdough’s acidic properties naturally retard mold growth, so if you’re going to eat your loaf in the next few days, leave it on the countertop! Wrap it in a kitchen towel or a cloth bread bag, or leave it in the paper bag it came in. Just avoid any kind of full plastic bag that’s going to trap moisture.

In the fridge

Up to 2 weeks

The fridge is a good medium term solution. Put your loaf in a zip lock and in the fridge for up to two weeks. The fridge will prevent mold but it will also lead to faster staling. So 1-2 weeks seems to be the sweetspot for keeping it fresh enough in the fridge that toasting is still able to really bring it back to life!

In the freezer

Up to 6 months

You can successfully freeze our sourdough for up to 6 months! Slice or portion it first then wrap it in a zip lock and put it in the freezer til you need it. When you’re ready, take out what you need and let it thaw at room temperature. Once fully thawed you’re good to go, but toast or reheat it to take it to another level! See reheating instructions below.

Keep in mind that these are guidelines and that there are a ton of variables that can effect how your bread stores. Please let us know what’s worked for you and if you have any questions or feedback!

Reheating instructions

Always keep an eye on your bread while reheating, every oven is different!

Whole loaf reheat
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F
  2. Spritz entire loaf with water
  3. Place loaf on center oven rack
  4. Bake 6-12 minutes*
    • *Bake around 6 minutes to crisp, 12 minutes to heat thoroughly
Whole baguette reheat
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F
  2. Spritz entire baguette with water
  3. Place baguette on center oven rack
  4. Bake 4-8 minutes*
    • *Bake around 4 minutes to crisp, 8 minutes to heat thoroughly

The above processes will also work for halves of loaves. Keep an eye on it and adjust your time in the oven accordingly. It shouldn’t need the full reheat time of a whole loaf to be heated thoroughly.

Toaster ovens work great to toast slices. Our personal favorite way to reheat slices is directly on the grates of a charcoal grill. This is a full contact sport of toasting it just right, since it all depends on how hot the coals are 🙂
