I threw these in a cooler and took them to the last potluck we had a work...everyone RAVED about them...they were the hit of the party! They all wanted the recipe and I was too embarrassed to tell them how easy it was! Thanks for making me look like a gourmet chef!
I am truly shocked and appalled by the corner-cutting in this recipe. How can any self-respecting chef use that processed crap that comes out of the tap? (or a bottle!) To truly make this recipe from scratch you need your own homemade water. I can't emphasize this enough.
You will need a tank of hydrogen, a tank of oxygen, a large disposable container, and an even larger pan to catch the drippings. You will also need an ignition source and possibly a blast shield. I suggest doing this out of doors. Carefully mix 2 parts hydrogen with one part oxygen in the disposable container and ignite while crouching behind the blast sheild. The great thing about this recipe is that it is very dramatic! Guests will 'oooh' and 'ahhh' and shake their heads as if they can't believe it. You'll know it's done once the large fireball is no longer visible. If all goes well, water droplets should fall into the pan. Then resume step 2 substituting in your own homemade water.
This is a phenomenal recipe. At first I had a little trouble fitting two cups into the little plastic trays but got it figured out eventually. One question though, I'm going to be doing an authentic German dinner for my inlaws and wondered, is there is a German version I can try?
I'm sorry, this is another indictment of todays "ready-meal" culture .. I prefer my water fresh not frozen!
I can't use this recipe without supervision because my parents say I'm too young to use the freezer :I
WARNING: This recipe contains Dihydrogen Monoxide, yes that's right! The person who posted this is misleading you with terms like: low-carb, gluten-free and all of those other "healthy" buzz words. The reality is this is DHMO and IT IS a chemical compound that has been know to:
*Be fatal if inhaled
*Cause severe burns
*Accelerate corrosion and rusting of certain metals
*Contribute to the erosion of our natural landscape
*Be a major component of acid rain
*Be used as an industrial solvent and coolant
*Be used as a fire retardant
I suggest you consider your family health and wellness when contemplating the consumption of GMO and chemical additives. You have a right to know exactly what you are putting in your body. ;)
I chose to make this with vegan water. I read that the water we consume actually comes from cow sweat. My girlfriend and I try to stay away from anything that can produce urine. I think the ice cubes came out wonderfully.
May I substitute applesauce? I'm trying to watch my cholesterol.
This recipe is OK, but I like Alton Brown's version better. By deconstructing the water molecules first, you get a much better end-result without all of the usual residue. Bonus: you get to use your electrolysis machine in the kitchen.
OK, after I made the ice cubes, I wanted to fry them, because of course everything taste better fried...Bad bad idea. I threw them in the fryer, the oil splattered all over the kitchen almost set my house on fire and my husband was soooo pissed off, that he told me NEVER to cook again and banned me from the kitchen...should have tried frying them a long time ago!!!
