This is a really easy one. Super easy. Easier than just about anything else you can do.
and ... you can feel really good because you're reducing waste. You're not throwing so much out. Yay!
Here's what you do:
1. Next time you buy some tomato paste, and open it - do NOT put the jar into the fridge. Where it'll get lost and fuzzy and eventually you'll have to toss it.
2. Instead, whatever paste you don't use up - spoon into an ice cube tray and pop into the freezer. After the cubes are solid, put them into a freezer-proof bag or jar and store in the freezer. You can use them whenever you need tomato paste, over the next month or two.
Even better, they're in 1 Tbs-ish quantities ... perfect for when you just need a little bit!
And think, you've just saved the world ... by making tomato cubes. Isn't life grand?
