We had a bread machine in my house growing up and it works just as well and perhaps saves you some time as you can fully walk away for several hours and come back with fresh bread. But I don't have the counter space or the money for one right now.
I have no idea how long it stay fresh as it never makes it more than a week in our house. But we just put it in one of those large freezer ziplock bags and put it in the pantry.
Do you use a bread machine, or just make it the old fashioned way? I've been wanting to make my own bread, but I don't have a bread machine. Not sure how hard it is or how long it stays fresh once you bake it. How do you store it once it's baked?
