Freezing tomato paste

Even though the cans of tomato paste are small, many recipes call for one of two tablespoons, leaving you with 3/4 of a can left.  You can freeze the extra, in 1-2 tablespoon portions for future use.  I wrap the tomato paste in plastic wrap, then put them all into a single plastic bag in the freezer so the individual packages don't get lost or fall to the bottom of the freezer.
When needed, they thaw quickly on the counter (or in your pot, if you forget to take it out early, as I frequently do).
