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

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.
I don't know why this needs to be published as a recipe... all you do is put water in an ice tray and wait for a few hours... But, nevertheless, it's very nice to have when making ice water or smoothies.
How could anyone not know how to freeze water for ice cubes?????????? You call this a recipe???????
Thank you so much for posting this keeper of a recipe! My teenagers had one heck of a time making ice cubes until I printed this recipe and hung it on the freezer door. Apparently, steps number 2-4 were confusing to them without instructions, and they both felt step 5 was optional. Thank you again for this excellent recipe!
My dog somehow got a few of the ice cubes from this recipe. I called poison control to see if the recipe was toxic for dogs and they recommended I take my dog to the vet immediately. The vet gave my dog 1000 cc of water to see if he would pee out the ice cubes, and thank goodness he did. I had to pay $700 but at least my dog is okay.
