I thought this deserved 5 stars. Unfortunately, my family disagreed and said they will defiantly NOT be using it again. They suggested maybe fewer steps.
I will be going out of town for about a week. Do you think it will be OK to leave these in the freezer while I am gone? I love these and don't want to do anything to mess them up while I am gone!
Thank you for your recipe. We make something very similar in Guatemala. Our version is called hielo, and instead of water we use agua.
Before my heart attack, I cooked and ate anything I wanted.
After my heart attack, All I was sure of was that I am allowed to drink all the water I want.
I decided it was time to take charge of my diet and did an internet search for "low salt, Low cholesterol recipes" The first recipe on my search was this one. 0_0
I was really relieved to see that it looks very easy to make and will compliment my water nicely.
Thanks for the recipe.
WOW! I took these to my church's monthy Sunday Potluck Dinner and everyone went crazy over them! I will definitely use this recipe again!
Bless you for posting this, CHRISSYG! It totally reminds me of the ones Grandma used to make. I especially like the shape of these, tho I assume you could change it up, if so inclined. I made mine as directed, and was rewarded with these lovely cubes of frozen wonderment! And WOW, what they do for a drink! :-) I even snapped a photo. Thanks so much for posting, CHRISSYG; you brought me a little nostalgia today! Made for Best of 2010 'tag game.'
Thank you so much. I had forgotten some of the details when I lost my recipe card years ago. Now we can have fresh ice cubes. I wanted to let you know a few things though. After trying the recipe a few times I decided to use a large tray instead. The purpose was to cut out some nice shapes, using cookie cutters, for my daughter's birthday party. Maybe you could help. I poured in the water just as you instructed then cut the shapes and put the tray in the freezer. When I pulled out the tray there was only 1 giant cube. What did I do wrong?
The recipe was complicated but well written so i was able to duplicate the process after a couple of failed attempts. Now that I feel more proficient about my ice making skills, I'm really starting to feel like a chef. Thank you for making "cooking" easy to understand, for us all. I plan to try making toast soon, with a toaster, just like Mamma used to make.
I printed this recipe and put it on my fridge. Definte keeper!
I can't believe all the reviews people are writing. I mean, how in the world did you people taste them? I've made two batches, but you can't pick them up with a fork or a spoon. I tried cutting them into smaller pieces, but that didn't work. Chopsticks was a complete disaster. I put them on a serving tray and we were going to try eating them as finger foods, but BRRRRRR... and they kept slipping out.
