How to defrost
  1. Remove bread from the freezer and leave at room temperature for up to six hours. You can also place bread in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours. Always leave the bread wrapped while it thaws.
  2. Defrost bread in the oven. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the plastic wrap if used when initially freezing the bread. Wrap the loaf tightly in aluminum foil. Place bread in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Remove pre-sliced pieces of bread from loaves in the freezer. You can "snap" off a slice or two from the pre-sliced loaf. Simply reseal and replace the remainder of the loaf in the freezer. Toast the slices for quick defrosting and browning.

Just like when I was a little girl!

I was excited to get this bread because I remember being a little girl and going to my Aunt's home to visit. She always had this bread! So she would serve me a slice with butter on it and I loved it! This bread is pretty close to that one of 50 years ago! It's funny the memories you retain. I would order this again. Thank you Polana for all the good Polish food that I grew up on!
