The most interesting, fascinating gift in many years. So interesting that I gave one as a house gift to my brother and his wife last summer.
The photo on the right is a breadbox. It comes from Siberia, you can get them online. It keeps bread fresh for more than a week. I say “more than” because I have usually eaten the bread in a week and it is perfectly fresh every day.
The reason the bread, any bread, stays fresh seems to be that the box is a traditional solution; it is make of birch bark.
Disclosure: No one paid for this promotional piece. I just love the breadbox.
