Q: I have finally started keeping canned tomatoes as a pantry staple. Many of the recipes that I use them for require a thorough draining. It seems like such a waste to throw out the juice, so I’ve been freezing it in ice cube trays.

How can I put my growing frozen tomato juice reserves to use?

Editor: Sofia, what a great question. We hate throwing out all that tomato juiciness too. What about pouring it into soups to amp up the flavor a bit?

Readers, do you have creative uses for leftover tomato juice?
