Does anyone know best way to store leftover tomato paste? Can it be frozen?

I usually only use smal quantity of tomato paste in a recipe, then the rest of the container goes bad in the fridge.  Wasteful.    Can it be frozen?  Thanks.

I don't like to waste anything either.  You can use an ice cube tray and measure what you need and freeze it and when they are frozen put them in heavy duty zip lock bags and get the air out, date & mark and put back into the freezer.

Whatever I don't use I put by measured tablespoonfuls in ice cube trays and freee.  Once frozen I pop them out, put into freezer bags and pop them back in the freezer.  Hope this helps

put the paste in a zip lock freezer bag and lay it flat so you can get all the air out and zip it shut .You can stack a lot of these in a freezer . Make sure you mark the bag what it is and the date . It will be good for a year .
