Freezing sauce

Whenever I make a basic sauce, stock or soup, I get the big pots out, because with that one pot I will make many meals and I recommend you do the same. The great thing about making a homemade sauce, stock or soup is that it can be frozen and used whenever you need it. You can always improvise a meal when that unexpected company drops by, or your grown up children come by for a visit and want doggie bags. The best way to freeze sauce is to let it cool once it is cooked. Then set a large zip lock bag in pot, and fill it up with the sauce or soup. Zip lock and freeze it until ready to use.
