Re: Moldy Bread

I've not found refrigerating bread to make it go stale, if it's sealed up well with minimal air inside the plastic bag. It'll delay it from developing mold, and I have plenty of experience in that. But yes, cooler air can make moisture wick out and make it dry. That's why I try to buy a whole loaf and slice it when I need it.

As for freezing, moisture wicking is more of a problem, so you don't want to leave the bread in there for too long (depending upon how much air you've evacuated from the bag). But I've found that softening it up a little in the microwave prior to toasting tends to achieve a more natural consistency than toasting it frozen.
