A Plea for the Tomato Tube
Just a quick note, NEVER buy tomato paste in a can please.
It doesn't make any sense at all. It is impossible to keep once you open the can.
It dries out so easily, it gets funky, AND its a strong acid hanging out in an aluminum can. (not a good thing)
Worst of all, you never use the whole can. Recipes always call for just a teaspoon or two.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest a very significant percentage of tomato paste in a can ends up the the garbage due to this fact.
Please get yourself the tomato paste in a tube.
You use as much as you need, put the cap back on and throw it in the fridge.
Simple as that.
It will lasts at least a couple of months.
You'll never have to throw away tomato paste again!
