|Ice Cube Tray Method
*In order to have accurate measures when using puree cubes in recipes, it is important to pre-measure your specific ice cube tray cups, as they may vary. I use the easy-release, stackable Rubbermaid ice cube trays shown here, and each cube = 2 tbsp. when filled to the top.
Therefore, it takes 2 full cubes to equal 1/4 c. of puree. This is the measurement I use when referencing the number of food cubes to use in each recipe. To make sure each of your puree cubes equals 2 tbsp., simply measure 2 tbsp. of water into one cube cup, then make a fill line (use a permanent marker or painter’s/masking tape on the outside of the tray).
If you are only using purees for baby food or for nutritional boosts, the measurement isn’t that important.
