Use Tomato Paste Zero
Jan 10, 2019

Show of hands. How many times have you actually finished a can of tomato paste?  Be honest now. Here, I'll go first: Approximately zero. I tend to use tomato paste in recipes that require only a tablespoon or two, and then I stash the rest of the can in the fridge, furtively and guiltily, knowing it will not see the light of day again until it grows a thin layer of fuzzy organisms and goes to its final rest in the recycle bin. Shameful, I know. I feel shame.

There is, however, an answer to tomato paste waste. This is the very best way to store it away and make it easy to use later. It's time to rescue your tomato paste! 

The Best Way to Store Leftover Tomato Paste as below:

1.Make dollops of leftover tomato paste with a tablespoon.
Use a measuring spoon to drop dollops of tomato paste into a small pan or container. I like to line the pan with freezer paper or wax paper.

2.Freeze the dollops of tomato paste until solid.
Put the pan with the tomato paste lumps into the freezer and freeze overnight or until they are solid.

Put in a bag or container for long-term freezer storage.
When the tomato paste is solidly frozen, peel the lumps out of the pan and put in a freezer bag or in a freezer container for long-term storage.
