Cute cube trays
Ice cube trays are for more than just ice! Perfect for those small portions of liquids or sauces, foods can be frozen and then transferred to sealed bags. It’s worth buying ones that are slightly flexible so that they don’t snap. Here are some ideas –
- Use up your fresh herbs by placing a spoonful in an ice cube tray. Cover with a small amount of water or melted butter and freeze.
- Recipes from salad dressings to cakes often call for just a few teaspoons of lemon or orange juice. Frozen in small amounts it saves having to cut into a new fruit.
- Freeze tomato puree and pesto – those fridge door favourites that you can’t get through within the stipulated date.
