Freezer Friendly Instructions: This recipe makes for a great gift idea and is wonderful for freezing loaves ahead of time. Just bake the loaves as directed. Allow them to cool to room temperature. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap making sure keep out the air. Freeze for up to 8 weeks. When you’re ready to give them as gifts, just move them to the refrigerator for 24 hours, tie them up with a fancy ribbon, and give away. Or eat the loaves yourself!
