People also ask, can we store tomato puree in fridge?
Tomato purée is silky smooth, and free of any seeds or skin that tend to make their way into chopped tomatoes or tomato sauce. It freezes beautifully, keeps in the fridge for up to a week, or can be canned, as explained below.
In respect to this, how do you store leftover tomato puree?
The Best Way to Store Leftover Tomato Paste
- Make dollops of leftover tomato paste with a tablespoon. Use a measuring spoon to drop dollops of tomato paste into a small pan or container.
- Freeze the dollops of tomato paste until solid.
- Put in a bag or container for long-term freezer storage.
You can use fresh tomato purée right away, or you can freeze it for long-term storage. Feel free to use your favorite freezer-friendly storage method, but I prefer zip-top freezer bags, as they freeze flat (taking up less space) and thaw quickly. Label the bags and store in the freezer for up to six months.
