Tomato Paste Drops

Here’s a tip that’s handy when making soups or sauces that call for a few tablespoons of tomato paste. When I purchase a large can of tomato paste, I line a baking sheet with waxed paper. I drop the paste by tablespoonfuls onto the paper and place the baking sheet in the freezer. When frozen, the tomato paste “drops” easily peel off the paper and can be stored in a resealable bag or freezer container. —Janine Daniels, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
