The thing about a concentrated spice paste from a jar is that I doubt I'd be able to tell if it was off unless it was really rank, plus if it was it'd waste all the food.

Can you freeze spice paste that's in jars once opened? (Or freeze as as ice cubes.) Ta.

Not suggesting you use it in food; just dip a tsp in and taste. If it´s off, it will either taste very acidic or rancid (thanks to the oil).
And yes, you can freeze it - you can freeze almost anything. What it would be like, I´ve got no idea because I´ve never done it!
