Flat bread lasts a lot longer due to lower moisture content.

+1, it has a shelf life of up to 3 months and when opened lasts for 3 days. I was looking at baking bread in the weber until I saw the shelf life.

Pumpernickel, it looks like bread, it's made like bread, it lasts for ever but tastes like!! (it's an acquired taste).

Flat bread, (in sealed packets) are great option, baking in Webber etc great option if you have time. Frozen bread if you have a freezer even better.

Hi Vicex,

How long do you need to keep bread? Try wrapping it in a few layers of newspaper and putting it in the coolest spot that you can find.
Keep some in the freezer if you have that option.
Flat bread I find is OK now and then but after one trip where we ate flat bread for 10 days straight it does get a tad monotonous.
Go for variety - make a damper occasionally and vary your carbohydrate intake by cooking some rice or pasta and having it cold with a few tasty things like pickles, olives, sardines, dried tomatoes or whatever your imagination can come up with (those tasty things dont take up much space when packing).

Cheers,

Val

Do you mean when travelling or at home? I take it you mean when travelling. If we are in places where good bread is hard to get we bake our own in the camp oven. We carry some of those prepared bread mixes and they taste fantastic. We also take flat bread for the reasons as mentioned, longer lasting.

We use the Foccacia type bread, freeze it then cryovac. You don't need to keep it frozen the only reason we freeze first is so that it doesnt shrivel up when cryovacing

You could probably use other breads as well
We also use Cruskit type biscuits for sandwiches as a substitute

Sourdough bread does not go stale as quickly as normal bread. We carry sourdough, which we buy from Woolies, but other suppliers are about the same. Generally a loaf of sourdoigh will go for about a week. If you have the capability to bake bread, Woolies will also sell you their frozen sourdough which you can thaw out and bake on the road as well. We do this both on the road and at home and love it.

Riiiggghhhht. To my recollection it was you and me sitting back watching your wife, the beloved BMJ kneading you a loaf that you then burnt...damn you (I was so looking forward to enjoying a piece of that loaf! ;-)

Now focussing on the question, I can recall that in the remote areas in the 70's you could actually buy an uncut loaf of white bread that was wrapped in a foil like wrap. This could be kept for several months in the cupboard and all you had to do was heat it in a hot oven for a limited time and hey presto, a fresh loaf. Obviously refrigeration and modern tech has done away with this (and my memory could have faded as well lol).

To illustrate how far technology has come these days, we can now run a small bread maker through a 1000W inverter in the back of the Tuck Truck. It doesn't work well if you are negotiating corrugations (she no rise) but they don’t affect the final bake cycle. The poor Cobb Oven has fallen into disuse as a result.

There are a lot of options but really, Bread will last if stored correctly. With modern DC/AC fridges and a bit of thought, you can always have a few slices for a jaffle or toast.



Nice to have you back mate. Trust the trip was enjoyable ;-)

At home I find any bread that is sliced seems to go stale faster than bread that is not sliced. I have one sliced bread at home for the kids, and one unsliced for me. The kids are to lazy to slice the bread, so prefer to go hungry. Leaving me a guareenteed bred when I want it.

For winter desert trips, we take 2 or 3 loaves of Helgas grainy bread. It has enough preservatives in it to last for a two weeks without mould! We store in in a cake tin to keep the light out, and its stored at ambient temperature. That's what works for us!

Just cut the mouldy bits off. Just kidding. Good quality white sliced bread will keep for a week or more in the fridge or ice box. Toast is also a way to make not so fresh bread taste nice again. Brian

If you carry some good bread flour make flat bread, make enough for the next day at the nightly cook, gas or fire. Easy pesy recipes on google mainly flour and water same scone recipe makes great desert with golden syrup at night. Use ur round washing up bowl for a mixing bowl. Cheap and u can leave all those preservatives at the shop.

Hi vicex
Aldi sells The Wraps, (type of flat bread) they last very long when unopened and there is choice of wholemeal and white, for very reasonable price.
