That is so funny. It even had photo's. My family never remembered the recipe, so I was always the one making them. I finally got a fridge with an ice maker.

I've gotten lazy in my old age and have a machine to make my ice. I know...I know...homemade is so much better. :)

Could we put vodka in there and enhance the recipe? Oh, no, vodka is an antifreeze--darn!

Thanks Sandy; I just refilled ours this morning...your timing is definitely right on target....except I didn't need a recipe...I needed help reaching that high with full ice trays....ours had been in there so long they evaporated...yes ice cubes will evaporate in the freezer!

This is so funny and the comments are hilarious too! Loving it!! I think I will email this link to my husband and see what his reaction might be since somehow or another the trays end up empty in the freezer!

Wait! You mean you don't need to buy it in bags from the grocery store??? What an amazing, liberating concept!

Too funny....glad I have an ice maker. Maybe I should write down the recipe just in case! :)

:icon_rofl: that is too funny! I love the comments. I haven't made them in awhile, my daughter usually takes care of that. I'll put the recipe aside so I'll know what to do after she moves out. Hahaha thanks Sandy, a good laugh before bed is always welcomed.

Okay guys!!! Make fun if you will but this is how I have to make ice in London. Most of the time I do it the British way and drink at room temp. I've recently been on an iced coffee kick. As that implies ice, that requires an ice cube tray! Now, we're not talkin' about a nice sized ice tray like Americans used to use. This ice tray is quite small and actually comes with a plastic top ( I actually think that's a good idea, however, I'm too lazy to put the top on. I just take my chances it won't spill.) To remove the ice from the tray, I take a gallon freezer bag and put the tray inside it to pop the ice out otherwise it falls all over the place. Every day I fill my little tray up and put it in my tiny freezer and make tiny ice. I've actually been using it to freeze lemon cubes for marinating fish. Produce is expensive here so "waste not want not." You may ask yourself, why does this crazy American lady only make one tray at a time? You may remember I said tiny freezer. So, in answer to your question Miss Sandy, I do indeed still use this recipe!

Happens to me all the time. I think the dust bunnies that live under the fridge get up there and eat them.

Thank you for the recipe. I think I will copy it and tape it to the outside of the freezer door so that DH can learn how to make these "cubes of delight".

I always said I didn't need an icemaker because I wasn't too lazy to fill the trays. I didn't realize that my children were too lazy, though! AND the people I used to work with ----

Oh, you mean no one had the family that would leave ONE cube in each tray and not refill them because "they weren't empty yet" ?

Read the recipe and a few of the comments to DH. His response was classic:

"I think all those people -- and you and your friends -- have WAY too much time on their hands."

I love him to pieces, and he has a wicked, dry sense of humor. Sadly, he doesn't understand MY sense of humor! lol

Thanks for the refresher Sandy. It has been a long time since I have made these. I do think I may still have some trays though.

I hope you told him that you and your friends just didn't stand around with their hands in their pockets!

I love it! The reviews are fantastic. I wish I'd have had this recipe for my mother when she was wanting us to run to the gas station to buy ice for her 3 times a week. We tried to tell her how to make her own, but maybe this would have worked better.

I don't even have to read the rest... when we first married... Mr. Bill used to tell people... OH, we don't have ice,,, Barbara lost the recipie!!!!...

I actually adapted that recipe years ago based on a factoid I learned in 8th grade Science class. Use warm water. Freezes faster. But, I NEVER measure anything! :D

I tried this recipe, but really didn't like it. It came out cold and hard and not very flavourful. I did adapt the recipe though. I instead added the water to a jug, added lemon juice and sugar and put it in the fridge instead of the freezer. Tasted delicious! :icon_giggle:



We actually used to joke that my sister needed a recipe for ice cubes because if she doesn't follow a recipe (and sometimes even when she does!) she ruins EVERYTHING she tries to cook! lol My Dad claims she can take the taste out of a bottle of pepper lol

I haven't used this recipe in quite a while. Although, I really love making orange juice ice cubes occasionally. We have a machine in our freezer to make these for us. But alas, it always gets jammed and we have to get the cubes out by hand. Such a pain. Thanks for the recipe.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'll bet you just walk out to your backyard and pluck some off the tree branches. Some people have it easy.
