|Frozen chicken broth|
|Frozen Tomato Paste|
My theory is that it can just be popped into the pan, as needed. I froze mostly 1 teaspoon and some 2 teaspoon portions of the paste and once they were frozen I popped them into a freezer bag. I was not very exact with the broth. I simply filled the ice trays and once frozen popped them into a freezer bag. I even double bagged them to be safe. I then labeled the outsides with the date and tossed them back into the freezer.

It really took very little time to do this and I saved money both in not wasting any ingredients this time, and in having them readily available for use in the future. Who wants to open an entire can of tomato paste for 1 or 2 teaspoons? I am inspired now to see what else I can save and freeze! I just have to remember to use it all!
