- How to store: You can make all of these bread recipes ahead of time, and store them in a bread basket or airtight container at room temperature for a few days, in the refrigerator for up to one week, and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- How to reheat: To reheat bread, just toast individual slices in the toaster or heat the whole bread up in in the air fryer or oven at 350 F for about 5-10 minutes until warmed through and crisp on the outside. If heating from frozen, let the bread thaw first in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat.
Use good quality and active yeast. Use yeast that has been stored in a cool, dark place. If stored in a warmer area, the yeast may no longer work. Also check the expiration date and make sure you are within that date.
How to tell if yeast is active. When mixing yeast with water, the mixture should start to bubble and develop a yeasty aroma. If nothing happens after 5-10 minutes, then the yeast is not active and you will have to use a different batch otherwise your bread will not rise.
Let the dough rise at room temperature (as opposed to a warmer area of your home). This will allow the dough to rise slowly and longer (over 3 hours). The slower rise at room temperature yields a light and chewy texture, and a more pleasant flavour.
