How to Perfectly Portion and Freeze Leftover Tomato Paste

Put almost-full cans of tomato paste to good use (and make things easy for your future self) with this efficient tip!

Often you only need one or two tablespoons of tomato paste at a time. What do you do with what's left in the can? Try dividing the paste into exact tablespoon measures on a plate, and place the plate in the freezer. Once the dollops of paste are frozen solid, transfer them to a resealable plastic bag, and place the bag in the freezer. This way you'll always have exact measures of tomato paste on hand!
