FIRE ISLAND ICE CUBES
Welcome to Fire Island, you should be making this recipe in the winter/spring as you prepare for summer - this is a great meal to make ahead for all you meal-preppers. It will feed a crowd and is not too expensive.
This checks every box for many special diets, which is rare these days - it's keto, vegan, and gluten free and also super low calorie.
Now you will want to make sure your freezer even works...this is critical to frozen ice. Does your house have an ice maker or even ice-trays, this will be the hardest part of the recipe. If you have a built in ice-maker, you must be rich. If you don't have ice-trays, or if they look like they have been used to clean the toilet, you should Amazon some ASAP or get some at the Pines Pantry.
Even if you have an ice-maker, you will run out of ice. So make sure to have some extra trays on hand or a bag of store bought ice.
If you are using the water on Fire Island, then chances are you are getting some minerals and perhaps some lead, but whose checking these days. These are free nutrients. Seriously don't read this article.
2 cups water (approximately)
2 tablespoons water (additional if needed)
Empty the ice cubes that are left in the trays (if there are any left) into the bin.Take the trays over to the sink and fill them with cold water [Hot water will freeze faster and more clear], so use HOT if possible.Place the water filled ice trays back in the freezer. Replace the ice bin if you had to remove it. Shut the door to the freezer. Be sure to leave for around 4-6 hours at least to make sure it is frozen. If you want to get fancy, you can freeze things into the ice like fruit, or freeze juices/mixers. One of our favorite things to do is freeze iced-tea or coffee and use it for our ice to not dilute down the drink.
Enjoy your summer.
