Kitchen Kapers: Freezing Leftover Liquids
A simple and practical tip for Freezing Leftover Liquids to use in recipes later!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes the most obvious things elude me. I’m always opening containers of things for cooking, then I’m stuck with leftovers. Often I just put the half used container into the freezer, but when I go to use it on another day, it’s not in the most convenient package for reuse.
For example, the tetra packs of broth. I use half and then put the half full container in the freezer for later. But when I need a small amount of broth for another recipe, the frozen block of broth just doesn’t help me much. So why not store it in better proportions?
I have these silicone muffin cups that for me, are terrible for baking muffins in, but, as I discovered, they conveniently hold 1/4 cup of liquid.
I used a cooking tin to hold the cups, then I just filled them up, and put them in the deep freezer overnight.
Then I transferred them over to a labelled freezer ziplock bag for use later. Now I can grab a block, and defrost them when needed. Easy to do. Easy to use.
Have a delicious day!
What a great tip. I need to get better at using my freezer to help me in the kitchen.
Great idea you “smartie” girl. 1/4 measurements are much better then ice cube tray measurements.
How come I have never thought of freezing my leftovers?? Thanks so much for this idea!!
Oh lord this is genius! THANK YOU. Finally a use for those silicon muffin cups!
Love it! thanks, I too struggled with how to deal with the leftover liquids and ice cube trays just don’t always cut it.
I freeze my homemade broths and sauces in silicon cups too! Can’t wait for soup season… 🙂
Hope you are well, Jo-Anna…
smart! I freeze everything, including Skim Milk. 🙂
Great tip! Thanks for sharing.
