I do because that flavor is so concentrated, I can’t possibly use a whole tin unless I’m roasting bones for beef stock, or in a chili.
So, then what do you do with the remaining tomato paste left in the can?
Don’t throw it out and just waste it! However, you can’t just leave it in the aluminum can because that’s not very good for you either, and it tends to go bad quicker for whatever reason.
So, I propose this this cooking tip as a manner of storing leftover tomato paste to keep it from going bad so quickly and to keep you from throwing it out and wasting it.
Store the remaining tomato paste in a clean, small-sized mason jar.
The tomato’s acids won’t attack the glass like it will the metal can, and you can see exactly what’s inside the jar, so you don’t happen to forget what on earth is in that little container you forgot about in the back of the shelf in your fridge…LOL
Now, you’ll be perfectly ready to cook all of those Italian Food Recipes you love so much, and not waste an entire can of tomato sauce each and every time!
