Keep sourdough bread in a cool, dry area.
To maximize the shelf life, keep in original packaging and store at room temperature.
How long does sourdough bread last in the fridge?
Sourdough bread should ideally not be refrigerated, as the bread will dry out and become stale faster than at room temperature.
Can you freeze sourdough bread?
Yes, to freeze:
(1) Slice bread or leave loaf whole;
(2) Wrap tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place in heavy-duty freezer bag and freeze.
How long does a loaf of sourdough bread last in the freezer?
Properly stored, it will maintain best quality for about 3 months, but will remain safe beyond that time. The freezer time shown is for best quality only – sourdough bread that has been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
How to tell if sourdough bread is bad or spoiled?
The best way is to smell and look at the bread: discard any bread that has an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the entire loaf.
