Once again the internet has come up big. About a year and a half ago, we highlighted Paula Deen’s english peas recipe, which consisted of butter and canned peas. Today, we have a restaurant staple that some, apparently, have difficulty with executing at home: ice cubes. I’m sure that the technological advances which allow for the widespread use of automatic ice makers and the cheap availability of large bags of ice from the grocery or corner store is certainly to blame for the loss of this crucial skill in American homes.
While I’m pretty certain the recipe has been posted as a joke (unlike Paula’s), that hasn’t stopped the internet from taking its shots. As always, the true joy in recipes like this are found in the comments.
I harvest my own free-range water, so the idea of putting it in a plastic tray and a commercially made electricity-wasting freezer disgusts me. I prefer nature’s method, waiting until the temperature outside drops below freezing
This recipe is horrible! Maybe I should have left them in longer than two minutes (the recipe doesn’t say how long to leave them in the freezer so I just kind of guessed) but mine came out all watery. I won’t be making these again.
