With the advent of ice machines many people either tossed their ice cube trays or donated them to Goodwill. Well these trays are not just for ice and homemade popcicles anymore.  I use mine to help portion out extra ingredients that I can freeze and save for later. Each ice cube is about 2 Tbs. Just pour in your liquid, put it in the freezer for about an hour and pop the cubes into labeled freezer bags. I highly recommend labeling your bags with both the contents and the date. Trust me…you will forget what exactly it is in each bag and it is good to rotate out older stock.

Ice cube trays are perfect for:

  • stocks: chicken, beef, veggie, etc
  • pesto
  • heavy whipping cream
  • buttermilk
  • apple cider
  • coconut milkice cube trays
