Tomato Paste ~ how long will it last in the fridge

darlingmole, Feb 17, 2:12am
Have an unopened tube of tomato paste and am wondering how long it'll last in the fridge once opened ... any idea?

5 minutes usually.
What I do is freeze it, put it in your ice cube trays and just take out as required, much better than fretting about mold.

The stuff in the tube will last quite a while so long as the lid is on. Don't worry if a bit of clear 'juice' comes out next time you use it. some separation is normal.

I buy large tins at Gilmores and tablespoon it on to gladwrap squares and freeze those little parcels. all together in a box. Dirt cheap that way.

I've freezed it a container and you can just chip chunks off.
It doesn't freeze hard as.
