Think Twice Before Defrosting Your Bread On The Counter
Storing your bread in the freezer, or buying and freezing it in bulk are both savvy ways to save time and expense. For tasty defrosted bread, don’t leave it out on the counter.
Moving bread from the freezer to the counter, and allowing it to defrost over time at room temperature
will cause it to go stale, lack any moisture, and be flavorless.
To defrost bread while preserving its texture and taste, heat it immediately after removal from
the freezer so it maintains moisture, resulting in soft, warm bread.
For frozen loaves, warm them on a baking sheet in a preheated 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for about 30 minutes, adjusting the time based on loaf size and desired crust crunchiness.
