Tomato Paste...

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Have you ever had to use Tomato Paste in a recipe?

AND the recipe only calls for a tablespoon or two?

Here's what to do with the rest of the can...

Measure 1 TBS of Tomato Paste and spoon into an ice cube tray and FREEZE.
Once frozen, remove and place in a freezer safe bag.

The next time you need tomato paste, just reach into your freezer and remove.


  1. Great idea.
    Now why didn't I think of that. Hehe
    Woolie hugs

  2. Good idea! Did you know tomato paste comes in a tube? I saw it on Rachel Ray one day. Don't know how expensive it is, but it would be convenient.

  3. I like the idea of freezing the tomato paste. wonderful tip.

  4. Well that is very clever, Lois! Thanks for the tip!


  5. You are a genius! Buying a can of tomato paste, using a tablespoon, and then throwing the rest out drives me crazy! Thanks!
