Anchovies get individually frozen for some future small need.
People eat anchovies? I thought they were bait.
Just kidding! Yes, planning ahead for a week to ten days really helps with the overabundance of leftover ingredients and helps the budget as well. Also, sometimes you can freeze or keep some things.

A forum is but a forum; the people make it a family.

I freeze them both. I put tablespoons of tomato paste in an oiled plate and freeze them then pop them off and put then into a ziplock.

The best way to get rid of anchovies is to give them to me so I can eat them. I love anchovies.

I love how Whole Foods now sells the unsalted "boquerones" in the little oil packs. SO GOOD.
