Just had to post this wonderful recipe. My brother always told me his wife couldn't boil water if her life depended on it. We came from a family where every female loved to cook. My poor baby brother married someone who had never cooked. Boy did he enjoy family dinners, lol...... Anyways, I wrote this recipe on a piece of paper for my SIL as a joke and recently her and my dearly departed brother's daughter, my niece, gave me the little piece of paper I wrote it on. In memory of my baby brother, here is my recipe for boiled water :)
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup ice cube
- Place water in large enough pot to hold 3 cups without boiling over.
- Add ice cubes.
- Turn burner on high.
- Do not watch pot or it will take forever.
- Do not leave unatended or you will burn the house down.
- Bring to a boil.
- Remove pot from burner.
- Turn burner off.
- Use immediately or you will have to repeat recipe.
Made it as per directions. A Little Bland. Thanks for the great recipe......
I have been wondering what all the fuss was about (you hear about it on all the cooking shows these days), but we tried this and the boiled water was FANTASTIC! A++! Tip: for a nice treat on a summer day, try it refrigerated. Pour over a glass full of ice... the kids love it! Thanks for sharing your family recipe!
I made this exactly as written except I added some boullion, diced chicken, carrots, celery, onion, egg noodles, parsley and salt and pepper. It was really good ;>) What a great memory of your brother !
