Cooking Tip #1

Today I have a really neat cooking tip. This idea is particularly great for people who are cooking for one or two people. One of my most annoying problems is opening a big jar of spaghetti sauce and then forcing myself to eat it every meal for the next week, or letting it fester in the back of the fridge.

One way to preserve it is to freeze it. Even then, thawing half a jar to make one serving is inefficient and excessive. A solution to this problem is to freeze the sauce in ice cube trays. Once the sauce is frozen, simply pop out the cubes and put them in a baggy or a container. Then you can thaw out the cubes one serving at a time.

This idea is great for all sorts of liquids, including pesto, coconut milk among others.
