Everyday, there are many, many people trying to bring a little bit of creativity mixed with a little bit of desire to camping, to make it easier. Now, they’re not the types to buy a fully stocked RV, buy all the highest quality goods, and call it a day. No, they like camping. They like the outdoors, but if they can, they would like to bring just a taste of home with them. Sometimes they fail, and sometimes they do not. Here are 3 Ice Cube Tray Tricks that are just that, a taste of home.
If you are camping out in the summer, hiking trails under the bright sun, surrounded by thriving vegetation, being buzzed by a plethora of insects, then odds are you have felt it. Maybe it was poison ivy. Maybe it was sun exposure. Maybe it was mosquito after mosquito. No matter what, you need relief. Before you head out, simply take some Aloe Vera and freeze it for a few hours in an Ice Cube Tray. Take those Relief-filled cubes with you in your cooler, in a bag, and you can apply it directly to the areas that are bothering you. It is cool, which is relieving, but then the Aloe Vera kicks in for another layer of relief.
Here is a great way to add a little bit of flavor to your meals. You can take your favorite herbs and spices and some olive oil and freeze it in an Ice Cube Tray. These tasty cubes are the best way to start off the dish you’re making. Start off with a cube or two before you start cooking your steak, roasting your beef, or even scrambling the scramble eggs. These cubes can be exactly what you want, using only the herbs you like. Sage, Dill, Rosemary, and Thyme are a great mix that will work with a lot of meals. To freeze properly, the cubes should be about One Third oil, and Two Thirds herbs.
Frozen Cream and Sugar
Making coffee while camping is easier than bringing the cream for the coffee, it seems. Cream has to be kept at a very certain temperature, not to warm or it will spoil, and not too cold or it will freeze. Keeping it frozen is pretty easy, though, as that is what would happen in our coolers. With Ice Cube Trays, though, we want to freeze it! Add cream to your Ice Cube Tray and freeze it, put them in a plastic bag, and put it in your cooler. These Frozen cubes are perfect for cooling down the coffee you just made while adding flavor. Bonus tip : add your sugar to the cream before you freeze it.
Here we have 3 easy ways that make camping just a little bit easier. We can give relief when we are burned, we can add flavor to your meals, and make coffee just a little bit easier. None of these tips will change the way you camp, and we don’t want that. We like camping for what it is, but if we can just add a little bit of spice to it, we can have our cake and eat it, too.
