Here is a quickie for you today 🙂
Yesterday’s muffin tin soup post, made me think about this great tip from Martha Stewart, Freezing Stock! Very useful and very thrifty too 🙂 I LOVE to save all left overs and reuse them in new ways whenever I can, so when I can do it in a muffin tin that’s extra special, lol!
Some recipes require just a little stock, and the leftovers from a whole can won’t keep forever in the refrigerator. Freezing unused stock or a homemade batch in 1-cup muffin tins makes it easy to store in small amounts. Pop frozen portions out of tin; store them in resealable plastic bags labeled with the date (frozen stock keeps for about two months).
Now your standard muffin tin cup only holds about 3 and 1/2 ounces, it is the larger ones referred to above that will hold the bigger quantities like 1/2 to 1 cup of liquid. Just use what you have unless you want to buy a tin specifically for this type of thing 🙂 But it is a good idea to test fill with water to measure and know exactly how much your muffin tins hold 🙂 Depending on how much each one of your cups hold just just pop out multiple cups when the time comes to equal the amount of stock you need.
So many cool little tips, tricks and different ways to use those muffin tins! Don’t worry I have plenty more for ya 😉 See you all back here tomorrow! Have a good one folks!
