As I opened the fridge and searched the top shelf... there it was, way in the back. The can of tomato paste, encased in a plastic zip lock, stood behind the feta cheese container. When was the last time I used it? Surely it was OK... well, not so. I tossed the sad can that had only one tablespoonful scooped from it. Seems so silly I thought as I opened a new can and yes, scooped just one tablespoon from it. I always resolve that I will make another dish in time to use the opened remains before they spoil.
But, NO.. usually my good intentions don't pan out.
Well, today I googled the answer. What to do with the remaining tomato paste. Place one tablespoon dollops on a parchment paper lined cooking sheet. Freeze until firm. Put into a zip lock in the freezer. So simple and no more tossing cans that are missing only one tablespoon of paste.
