Have you ever opened up a can of tomato paste just to use a tablespoon and it mysteriously disappears in your fridge only to spoil.
Well stop throwing food away and start freezing them. Freezing preserves food almost like canning does. I do it all the time. Today I will show you how to save your tomato paste.
Tomato paste and any ice cube tray. You can also do this with tomato sauce.
Add your leftover tomato paste to a ziploc bag. You don't have use this method, you can spoon it in the tray. I just find this way less messy. :)
Snip an end and squeeze into the ice cube tray. The amount I squeeze out is equivalent to a tablespoon . Be sure to measure how much you are putting into each compartment.Put in the freezer.
Remove them from the ice cube trays after they have hardened, they will take the shape of whatever ice cube tray you used.
Put the frozen tomato paste in a bag and store it in the freezer for up to 3months. Don't forget to label the bag.
