Uses of Ice Tray

Some people leave their ice trays sitting unused and collecting dust in a cabinet or drawer, others use them for one or more of the following uses:

- Store Baby Food : Fill each compartment to the top with your pureed blends (homemade baby food), and freeze. Then, take out the desired number of cubes at mealtime.

- Freeze Spices : Freeze some self grown spices for use during winter months, and use a cube any time you need to.

- Freeze Leftover Eggs :
If you take the egg yolk for a recipe, you can freeze the whites (or the opposite).

- Popsicles : Fill the ice cube tray with juice, pudding or mashed fruit. Then, cover with foil, and poke a popsicle stick through the foil and into each compartment.
