Quick tip…you know how you never use the whole can of tomato paste? So then you stick it in the fridge, thinking that you’ll use it within the week. Then 2 months later, when you finally get around to cleaning out your fridge, you find it…and throw it out. Next time, scoop out 1 tablespoon size portions from what’s left in the can. Put them on a piece of parchment or wax paper on a small tray and freeze. When they are frozen, take them off the tray and put them back in the freezer in a freezer bag. Now, the next time you need tomato paste, you’ll have convenient 1 tablespoon size portions ready to use.
