Storage Tips

Bagels (Rome):

  • Serve by cutting open sideways, toasting and then putting on the toppings of your choice. Options are endless!

  • Best to move bagels from the paper sack to the plastic freezer bag we provide if you don’t eat straight away as they preserve better there. 

  • After a day or two, move to the fridge or cut in half sideways and freeze.

  • You can toast straight from freezer - do not thaw.  

Bagels (shipped outside Rome):

  • Your bagels were made fresh the morning they were shipped out. We placed them in freezer bags to try to keep them as fresh as possible by the time they arrive to you.

  • Our bagels, even at their freshest, are best served toasted. Serve by cutting open sideways, toasting and then putting on the toppings of your choice. Options are endless!

  • Once you receive your bagels, you can eat them straight away, but best if you pre-cut in half sideways and freeze using the bags they came in.

  • You can toast straight from freezer - do not thaw.  

 

Pickles 

  • Jars are not vacuum sealed so keep your pickles in the fridge. For optimum conservation, make sure the pickles are kept submerged in the pickling brine. 

  • Pickles can last 2-4 weeks in the refrigerator but the flavour and texture will change over time. 

  • After 2 weeks, check for any bad smells or fuzzy mold on the surface or any floating pickles exposed to the air.

  • If you are in Rome and decide to order more pickles from us - please give us your old jar & lid (if not rusted) so we can wash, sterilize and reuse them. Thank you!
