We all have ice cube trays lying around, from the boring rectangular ones to the fancy ones in every shape you can imagine and in my house especially they seem to spend more time in the cupboard than they do in the freezer.
We just don’t use that much ice, but now I have so many fantastic uses for ice cube trays, I don’t think they will be spending much time in the cupboard anymore, especially now that summer is coming and I have some great new healthy treats for the kids to try.
1) Flavoured Ice Cubes
You can freeze just about any flavour you like, citrus, berries, vanilla and just add them to drinks. Great in mineral water for flavour without all the sugar.
2) Preserving Fresh Herbs
This time of year herbs are going crazy, parsley, basil, mint, sage and thyme are certainly taking over my backyard! In a few months though they will be gone again, but if you harvest them, cut them up and freeze them in olive oil in ice cube trays you will have them pan ready all year round.
