Also known as “refreshing” your sourdough bread, the below tip helps you enjoy warm sourdough bread everytime you prefer it that way.
Sourdough bread – unlike factory made bread – has a longer shelf life and can be consumed warm and fresh tasting everytime.
Example – If you have some left over sourdough bread from today and want to have it tomorrow, what you can do is just wrap it in a cling wrap (thin plastic wrap) and put it into the fridge. Tomorrow, just unwrap it, and you can consume it in a couple of ways. Preheat an OTG to 180 deg C, lightly spray /sprinkle water on the surface of the loaf, and bake it in the oven (until crusty – may take 10-15 min depending on the oven). Or else, you can make slices of the loaf, and roast it in a pan, butter both sides of the slice and have it.
It tastes amazing. 🙂
PS – Sourdough bread by nature has a good shelf life. Despite not using preservatives or any other chemicals, the shelf life of our breads on the counter is 2 days, and in the fridge is 7-10 days. You can freeze it for much longer periods of course. 🙂
PS2 – We dont recommend slicing the bread before refrigeration/storage. The breads tend to loose freshness. Only if you are planning to freeze the bread, you can slice the bread, wrap and then freeze.
