How to Fill an Ice Ball Mold
A few tips and tricks will be useful when filling a standard two-piece ice ball mold:
1. Separate the two pieces of the mold.
2. Holding the mold over the sink, fill the bottom mold to the top of the rim (not just the sphere shape) with distilled water.
3. Place the top piece over the bottom and push it down. The water displaced from the bottom tray will fill the top part of the sphere. Any excess water will come out of the air holes on the top of each ball mold.
4. Set your ice ball mold on a level surface in the freezer. If the mold is tilted, water will leak out and you will not have a full ball once it is frozen.
5. Allow the mold to sit undisturbed for at least three to five hours, or until completely frozen. The time needed will depend on how cold your freezer is and where you place the tray within it.
6. Once frozen, separate the two parts of the tray. If any of the ice balls stick to the mold, run cold water over the bottom of the mold and the ice should release.
7. The frozen ice balls can be stored in a freezer bag or a bowl in the freezer until needed. If you keep up on the freezing cycle, you can easily have a dozen or more ice balls available at any time.
