Until you decide how you want to use the leftover puree, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. If you don’t get around to using the remaining puree within a week, freeze it. It can be very helpful to store the puree in pre-portioned amounts. Use a cookie scoop and freeze the puree on a sheet pan in the fridge before placing the frozen puree scoops in a zip-top freezer bag. You can also use an ice cube tray or a muffin tin. Defrost portions as you need them.
