Boiled Water

Boiled Water created by Debbwl

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 :)

    Should I use the Ice cube made out of boiled water ? Please say NO, the world doesn't need another 'Which came first egg or chicken' dilemma.

    This looks great. Normally, I buy all my water pre-boiled, but may give this a go someday. BTW, are there any differences between water that's boiled with electricity, gas, induction, or microwaved? TIA.

    Great recipe. The water is a bit wet though, would recommend cooking the water for an extra 5 - 10 minutes once it's boiling.
