    1. Great!

      Thanks Lizard for some more lost time.

        Low sodium
        Gluten Free
        Low cholesterol
        Low sat. fat
        Low calorie
        Low carb
        Egg Free
        Free of...
        Low in...
        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?

        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."


          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.
