I thought I might share this with anyone who is tired of having to bake bread on the boat. We found this pre-baked bread at Costco in May. We bought twelve loaves for our three months summer cruise in the Bahamas. With temperatures around 85 degrees the bread stayed perfect. We would not bake the whole loaf as recommended but would just slice whatever we needed and lightly toast it in the toaster.
Back home in September we can't find it anymore at Costco but they have a website where it can be ordered in one or 6 units.

You can do much the same with normal loaf bread by purging the air out with CO2. I've done that many times when taking treats aboard ship. It works for most anything that is prone to spoilage from mold or oxidation.

We tried them for our cruise this year and they are awesome. We bought sour dough, Rosemary French and a multigrain loaf. I hope they continue to carry these products

We used them this year too.

The sour dough is a bit small for sandwiches but great for garlic bread.
Tested it at Lagoon Cove Happy Hour and didn't take home any leftovers.

I was thinking about changing the boat name to "The Garlic Express" or "Roasted Garlic"
We do use a lot of it: bread, potatoes fish, breakfast cereal etc.
