Wondering how to preserve the freshness of a bagel?!? Look no further, the bagel girls are here to help. Bagels stay freshest when you seal them in a plastic bag after cooling. You got a few options: 1) eat them ALL when they’re still fresh or 2) store them in a sealed zip-lock bag (should be cool before sealing) 3) throw them in the freezer for up to one month and when you want to satisfy that bagel itch, simply throw them in the oven and enjoy the oh soo baked goodness! But you want to make sure you slice the bagel before freezing, so you don’t have to wait those excruciating minutes for your bagel to defrost, AND to avoid any unsightly accidents!! Also, refrigerating bagels (or any other type of bread) is a no-no – they’ll go stale up to 6 times faster in the fridge.
