Well I got up this morning to take it out of the tray and put in a freezer bag, but I cant get it out of the tray!!!
Any ideas on how to get it out? and any ideas on a better storage idea?
hmmmmm. I never had any probs getting them out...
Try putting straight hot water in your sink, then put the ice cube tray in the water only for 5-10 secs... it should be enough to loosen them without thawing them.
Another idea: use muffin tins.... put in the paper liner...then it won't get stuck. ( you could use it for 2 feedings.)
Last suggestion: put tbsp full in piles on a cookie sheet....freeze it, then you can use a flipper to get them off if they are stuck. (this will work with thicker foods.... not too good for runnier consistancies tho
I've used the above methods with great success. ( I still do freeze things in muffin tins)
