How to freeze your bread in chunks and reduce bread waste … kitchen helper


We’ve all been guilty of letting a beautiful loaf of artisan bread, which that we are so lucky to have a great supply of in Tasmania, go to waste by letting it go stale before being able to eat the whole loaf.

Those days are over if you can implement this easy tip.

When you buy your loaf, cut it into chunks or wedges – whatever you think you will use in one day or sitting; so you might cut your loaf into 4 or 5 chunks.

Wrap it in freezer safe clingfilm and store it in the freezer. When you need it, defrost a chunk overnight or warm it in the oven. Then it’s ready to slice and eat, or toast, as you wish, without waste.

This is preferable to freezing it in slices, as slices can get icy, or freezing a whole loaf, as it’s too large a portion to use quickly.

Bread can be frozen safely for up to 3 months.
