Looking for a way to make your ice cubes crystal clear instead of cloudy?
You ever notice that when you make ice cubes in your freezer they usually come out all cloudy? The reason? You're using cold water.
That's right, according to James Peterson's excellent book What's A Cook To Do?, if you want your ice cubes to come out more clear, use hot water from the tap. Most of the cloudiness comes from air that's in the water. If you use hot water, there's less air in there. Not sure why this is, it has to do with "science."
Now, about the way those ice cubes sometimes smell...well, that has to do with what you store in the freezer.
