Ice cube recipe

I know that many readers of this forum are interested in healthy, good eating. So, I offer this link to a recipe on how to make ice-cubes.

Ice Cubes Recipe - Food.com - 420398

My first thought is that the low-carb people will be thrilled to have another recipe that meets their exacting needs.

. Love the comments.

I was in Branson recently and shopped at several of the kitchen stores. I was amazed at the types of ice trays offered...my favorite was the ice cube tray that created ice shot glasses...the scotch didn't come with it though, so I passed.

Now, how does one run into a recipe like this? Did you do a search for instructions for making ice cubes?

I think it popped up in another thread recently. I didn't get back to comment on that, but I read the 'recipe' and the comments are hilarious (as is the satirical nature of the 'recipe'). I figured that people wouldn't see the humor in themselves, but they were excellent.

And then you get a couple: "A recipe for ice cubes, seriously?"


'just like gramma made, but she went to her grave with the recipe.... I'm a busy, working mother of twins, do you have a crock-pot version of this recipe? ...'

In July we traveled to see DH's mom and we stayed in her home for a week. She politely told me I was making the ice cubes wrong. I love her dearly and we don't get to see her very often. I asked her how she wanted them made and then followed her directions. For anything after that (laundry, dishwasher, flower watering, etc.) I found it was easier to just ask her how she wanted me to do something rather than enter a discussion (long, entangled, diving off onto tangents that never return to the topic, now what we we talking about?)......

Anyways, she's 83 and the only Mom I have left, if she's happy giving me all the info I need on making ice cubes, well then, I may as well take notes.

The dishwasher issue is for a whole 'nother discussion.

Great stuff!

Obviously, the recipe-writer hoped the family would get the hint. Sadly, experience shows they did not. Why? Well because the recipe-writer always takes care of it!

They should be introduced to Sue J's mother-in-law, she can straighten anyone out!

The hardest part in ice cube making is carrying the trays from the sink to the fridge without spilling. And one must make sure the trays sit level in the freezer. Ditto if the trays are stacked. I am glad I have an ice maker.

The recipe does not offer any technique to conquer the above difficulties that I myself experienced. Booh!

I recently had to relearn the art of ice cube making. The fridge in my RV does not have an ice maker.

I thought this was going to be a thread about ice cube recipes. As in, make a big batch of salsa, guacamole, pico de gallo, sauce, marinade, etc and then freeze tiny batches in ice cubes for single serving portions.

When I was a teenager, I spent most of my summer days at the beach with my friends. I was a fanatic about iced coffee (it's a NYC thing) and always took a big thermos of the stuff to the beach with me. I used to make a strong pot of coffee and pour it into ice cube trays. Then I could make a normal pot of coffee, let it cool, then mix it with those coffee cubes in the thermos to have a perfect mixture.

Haven't thought about that for 50 years, so thanks for the good laugh.

I love it ! But it made my stomach hurt (don't know if was the actual recipe or if it was from reading the comments while consuming the result that did it)

I'm surprised "someone" did not reply something like:

- Go to appliance store.
- Buy refrigerator with built in Ice-Maker.
- Have it delivered.
- Plug in, wait 2 hours and enjoy!


Of course they may have and I just did not read the over 400 responses. !
