Have you ever wondered why fresh, bakery bread is sold in paper bags while longer-lasting packaged breads are sold in plastic? It comes down to that delicious, flaky crust. Plastic wrapping traps in moisture, which can make the bread soggy. A traditional paper bag lets the bread breathe preserving the intended texture of the bread. If you don't plan to eat the bread within two days, simply pop it into the freezer and thaw when you're ready to enjoy it.
