Using that logic, you should never get out of bed in the morning because something bad could happen...

Well, acidic reaction aside.....
The little globs are sitting on my foil covered cutting board. Seemed to make more sense than dirtying a plate. They will be removed as soon as they freeze.
And I also just realized I need a mellon baller. What a pain in the butt getting the paste off of/out of the tablespoon.

I don't use my butt, I use a finger to get the paste off the spoon.

I purchased som plastic ice cube trays an spoon the tomato paste into them and then when frozen pop them out and put into zip bag or plastic tub. Then when I need one just take it out of the freezer.

When i get alot of lemons lime or oranges I do the same I will zest them and then juice them and freeze them in the ice cube trays so i always have zest on hand and juice.

Here in upstate newyork the lemon, lime and oranges aren't the best in the winter.

Well I didn't want to wash my hands and let the splashing water contaminate my work area.

well, joking and poor equivocation aside. it`s Never a good idea to leave Anything in a can once it`s been opened.

I know of no source that says Otherwise, but I will happily read it if you have one

Anytime I drink a beer out of a can, I always try to get it outta there as quickly as possible.

It's been in the can for months already. I've stored in in the can for at least a week and it's been fine.


Freezing it is the way to go, though.

But I wouldn't use cooking spray on it. That's unnecessary.

And you don't need to portion it either. Just dig it all out and spread on a piece of plastic wrap. Spread it uniformly into a rectangle, wrap and freeze flat. Then just break off what you need.
