This is the Best Way To Freeze Thanksgiving Leftovers

Every year you're faced with the same problem: trying to find the perfect solution for storing Thanksgiving leftovers. Let ice trays come to the rescue.

Freezing liquid leftovers like cranberry sauce, turkey broth and gravy in ice trays is a great time saver. This allows you to portion leftovers into ice cubes you can whip out at any given moment. Need a bit of cranberry sauce for a roasted pork loin? Done. Need some turkey broth for your pilaf? Done. 


You can use metal, plastic or silicone ice trays of any size - use whatever you have on hand to make things easier. After your Thanksgiving leftovers are frozen pop them out and store in freezer bags. Label them and make sure to use within three months (broth can go up to six months).

Have any leftover chopped herbs? Mix them with oil and pour into ice trays. Instant flavor booster!


Obviously, ice trays work best for liquid items. We suggest turning leftover mashed potatoes into croquettes and using leftover turkey to stuff empanadas.
