Lightbulb Hi! I am new to this site.

Hi! I am new to this site. I found it by googling "how to make tomato paste", and I ended up here. I found a good post or two.
I am not a chef or a 'cook', simply a wife who wants to learn more about cooking ahead of time and freezing it, which led me to the google search for tom. paste, which will be a good thing to freeze and pull from the freezer when I am making soup, stew, chili, etc.
Feel free to private message me if you have any tips that you would like to share on how to prep ahead and freeze, even if it seems to you the simplest or most obvious of ideas, ya never know...I might not have thunk it yet!

Welcome to DC!! Like Thumpershere, I too made it only once. While the end quality was great, it was just too time consuming to get it to the right consistency. Given what I can buy it for, I've never made it again.
