See the full roundup here: Diply: 16 Genius Ways To Use An Ice Cube Tray When you bought your new freezer it probably came with an ice cube tray. These hardly ever get any use apart from during the summer when people want to make ice cubes to cool their drinks down. There are lots of creative ways to use ice cube trays. Some unique ways to use ice cube trays: – To save leftover wine – To cover strawberries in Chocolate – Storing Buttermilk – Storing Baby food To Save Left over Wine If you opened a bottle of wine and aren’t able to finish drinking it, then you could save it by freezing it. A great way to do this is to pour the wine into an ice cube tray and freeze it. The wine will keep for many months and can be used for cooking. Whenever you want to cook with wine, simply drop one or two cubes into your dishes. To Cover Strawberries in Chocolate Dipping strawberries in chocolate is quite a messy task. To make this much easier and less messy you can fill an ice cube tray partially with chocolate. Before putting the chocolate inside it is sensible to use a non-stick oil spray to coat the ice cube tray so that the chocolate slides out easily. Then drop your strawberries into the chocolate. This will cover the strawberries in chocolate without making mess everywhere. Once the chocolate is set you can remove the strawberries and use as normal. Storing Buttermilk Butter milk is a very useful ingredient called for in a number of recipes. However, it doesn’t get used much and this means that you will often waste quite a lot. Portion out the buttermilk by putting it into an ice cube tray and freezing. If you put two tablespoons in each ice cube it’s the perfect dose for many recipes. Storing Baby Food If you buy baby food then it can be very expensive. A cheaper option is to make your own, the problem is that making a small amount is quite difficult. You can make extra and then freeze it by putting it into ice cube trays. Then you can defrost exactly the right amount of food and warm it up for your baby.
