2. Add ingredients to the bread pan in the order listed: liquid ingredients first, followed by the butter, then the dry ingredients, and lastly, the yeast in the center of the dry ingredients.

Since homemade bread contains no preservatives, it does not stay as fresh for as long as commercially made bread. Store your bread in a
Plastic bag or sealed storage container to keep it from drying out. Keep the bread at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to one
Week. For longer storage, place the bread in the freezer. Slice before freezing so you can remove only the number of slices you need at a time.
