Most recipes I use with anchovies call for just a couple of filets. I really hate to waste the rest because I don't use them that often. I purchase them packed in salt and olive oil. Do any of you guys freeze yours?

i never freeze anchovies. as u said, it is pack in salt and olive oil which common sense should indicate both salt and oil is the anchovies preservative. i am surprise why people do not use anchovies in cooking. i use it in making pasta sauce, in stir frying veggies in place of salt. makes any dish more delectable, but that is just me. explore ... take adventure in cooking, u'd be surprise what these natural ingredients has to offer. they are there for a reason. hth

Thx MaVie... Do you refrigerate them instead? I used them in a tapenade last night. I also use them in sauces for pasta too.

i have very tight plastic containers i keep them in the fridge. i also buy the small cans at the 99 cents store. i have been wanting to find the Italian kind that comes in big bottle or can. with no luck, so i do not have alternative but the 99 cents store or regular local store where they are highly priced. , ,
