If you attended the Walt Disney World Back to Basics lecture by Chef Tony Marolla, his first cooking tip was to use ice cube trays to freeze various small item amounts such as coffee for frozen coffee drinks, herb butters, and wine. All are great tips and some of them I have used in my home kitchen, but I found that getting them out of the ice cube trays and then storing them into plastic bags difficult and it took up a lot of space in my small freezer.
Ball silicone products to the rescue. These trays make it easy to remove just one cube at a time and have covers included so that you can efficiently and neatly store them in your freezer. They are BPA free and dishwasher safe, of course.
While I was in the store isle that sells Ball canning jars, I was amazed and delighted to find additional handy products for our modern life. There are infusing tops to put a slice of fruit for your fruit water into a wide mouth glass canning jar, and shaker tops for regular mouth glass canning jars that can be used to store your custom spice blends. Before the season changes and these items are difficult to find in local stores, I have been stocking up on beautiful green and blue canning jars and various accessory products, such as the Frozen Herb Starter two packs. You might consider this yourself, if you enjoy cooking at home; or, you might consider buying them now as a gift.
If you are near the Orlando International Airport, the WalMart store located North of the airport on Semoran (Highway 436) and Lake Margaret Drive currently have an excellent selection of Ball preservation and canning products.
