Recipe Notes

To freeze unglazed loaves, wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Store in a large freezer bag or an airtight container. When ready to eat, remove from freezer and defrost on the counter for 2-3 hours. You can freeze for up to 3 months. Slice and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, if desired.
