Food.com Commenters Review Recipe for Ice
(Apologies if you've already seen this.)
Very funny. I also like that the recipe is...
Low sat. fat
5 ingredients or less
< 4 hours
Time to make
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?
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."
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/
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.
