A Small Rant

First, please forgive me for simply venting after not posting anything since last week. But…

As somebody (I don’t have the patience to search at the moment) posted earlier, NYC dairy products have two expiration dates

    moldy bread=gross.

    my bread usually gets moldy within 3-7 days. 3 days if it’s actually freshly baked bread and around 7 if it has some preservatives.

    when i buy a loaf, i can’t eat the whole thing before it gets moldy anyway so i stick about half of it in the freezer (in a freezer-baggie, otherwise it’ll taste like ice, or something) and take one out, pop it in the toaster whenever i want some bread. this only really works if you’re not taking the bread out for lunch or whatever. then it just gets sort of soggy. but it works fine for in house bread-eating. try it!

    The fact that your bread gets mouldy means that you have real bread, not some bread-esque substance that’s more preservative than good ingredients. You get to choose: long-life “bread” or capital-B Bread, which must be eaten soon or die a natural death (or serve as food for other life-forms than you).

    Rantor, I only wish I was eating ‘real’ bread. However, this is the standard garbage from the grocery store filled with unpronouncable chemicals – and it still gets moldy in a matter of days. Where I come from homemade bread is safe for a week, easy.

    Oh well, I suppose there has to be some drawback to living in one of the greatest cities in the world.

    i’m addicted to my vaccuum sealer–i put everything in those food saver cannisters. I am sure that would make your bread (and everything else) last longer but it’s an investment to get set up.
