You can just feel the desperation of the person who wrote the recipe, can't you?

Her family are probably related to the people who are congenitally incapable of replacing the toilet roll when they've used the last sheet! To say nothing of their cousins who put the empty milk bottle back in the 'fridge

I ranted and raved all through the teen years about that! So they started leaving about 2 tablespoons in the carton!!!!!

SO glad not to have to deal with teens any more.

Just tried the lemon and lime idea, yummy ! the other day i used Caffe Cagliari pods to make my iced coffee cubes the traditional way (frozen coffee)

it tasted great, what coffee do you use for your frozen ice cubes ?

Here's a handy recipe on how to make Ice for those who need the practice until it gets warmer. And check out the reader reviews/ comments too.

Thanks! I saved that to my recipe file!

Thanks so much for posting this. I always regretted that I missed the day they taught ice cube making at culinary school. When I catered we needed much more than you could make yourself so we purchased prefrozen cubes by the bagful.

I never knew you could make it at home!

A note to the OP - I am in no way making fun of you (just the silly recipe) - I too use coffee or tea (or even lemon juice diluted in water) to make cubes for tea or coffee. For punch we used to always freeze a fruit filled ring of juice to look pretty and not further dilute it.
