        Freezer
        < 4 hours
        Time to make
        Easy
        Equipment

        And the directions are great, too:
        1 Empty the ice cubes that are left in the trays (if there are any left) into the bin.
        2 Take the trays over to the sink and fill them with cold water.
        3 Place the water filled ice trays back in the freezer.
        4 Replace the ice bin if you had to remove it.
        5 Shut the door to the freezer.

        But.. what then?

        1. I've seen it before but lo and behold there are new comments, each one better than the last.
          "My daughter, a long-time vegan, has recently become increasingly concerned about the effects of her diet on innocent plant life. For the past week, she's eaten nothing but liquid water, and has lost a great deal of weight. Thank you so much for this recipe. Now that I can get some solid food into her, I'm sure she'll start fleshing out again."

          Thanks!

          1. Epicurious has had one up for Salted boiling water for years

            1. ...and even includes 7 photos in case you're unsure of how the final recipe should look ;o)

              1. Funny comments, but now "artisan ice" is becoming a cocktail trend:

                  If you walk into a wine shop you'll see plenty of inventory on ice crafting. Shapes, blocks, special tricks. There's a whole cottage industry surrounding ice. In Quebec at the ICE HOTEL you can drink a cocktail out of a container carved from a small block of ice. http://www.hoteldeglace-canada.com/

                    The story I linked looks like it's from a Portlandia sketch.

                      I love Portandia!! So let's add it here:

                      charred ice!!..too funny...secret of the pros, ha!

                2. They forgot critical steps: Show husband where sink is. Teach him how to turn water on. Show him where freezer is. Teach him how to open it. Or just get new husband.
