Ice-cubes the Old-Fashioned Way
(We freeze them)
I am occasionally given to gourmet
indulgence when the ice freezes on
Smith Pond, but I usually do my ice in
the freezer of our refrigerator.
It is extremely important to let the tap
water run for a few minutes, fill metal
trays with clean, cool water.
Immediately insert trays into your
freezer until very firm when touched
with your index finger.
You may then become creative with
your ice. There is shaving, cracking,
crunching, adding color, fruit, or
beverages with your ice.
For a family of four:
6 ice cube trays
fill with cold water,
freeze and serve
