I spent a lot of time when my first son was a baby freezing tiny ice cube portions of pureed vegetables. I had a super little system of plastic bags and tiny portions which could be defrosted quickly. But I also spent a lot of time trying to get those portions out of my ice cube makers – food sticks harder than water and sometimes needs to be chiseled out, or partially defrosted to make it slide out.
No more, I say with glee.
I’m freezing muffin sized portions of soup and pureed veges for my second son in silicon. Because it’s flexible the portions just pop out as I peel back the silicon. My little system of plastic bags is so much less time consuming and frustrating. I use the mini muffins for small meat portions and normal muffins for veges.
