    Default Looking for light weight, small size cylindrical or any other shapethat is freezer safe to store concentrated stock (Chichen broth for example)

    I am looking for freezer safe containers that would store one or two
    serving of concentrated stock to be used in making beef soup. The
    stock would be chicken broth.

    Shape can be cubes/cylindrical or whatever shapes but I want
    individual storage, i.e, enclosed containers. I do not want thos
    those ice cube trays which has no lid/cover for individual piece and
    also I can't get only whhat I want. I'd have to defrost the whole damn
    thing.

    It doesn't have to be plastic but Iif it is aluminum or stainless
    steel it needs to be small so that I can socka it in hot water and
    slide the pice out quickly. I'd prefer micrwaving though.

    I have done some googling but the only plastic bottle that are similar
    size I saw are for chemical sipplies but they have neck that are
    smaller than the body - I prefer the cylindrical shape all the way to
    the lid so that I can defrost it quickly and slide the frozen piece
    out into the pot.

    Though I'd prefer something that is not that long, an example of
    cylindrical shape (all the way to the lid) is spice bottles shown at
    http://www.fantes.com/images/2240spice.jpg

    If you have any useful information what to busy from where and would
    like to share, that'd be great.

    Freeze it in a plastic bag, break off what you need, and microwave it
    in a bowl.

    Just freeze your stock in ice cube trays. Pop the cubes out and put
    them in a freezer plastic bag. That way you can take
    out as many cubes of stock as you need and keep the rest frozen.

    I think ice cube trays are what you want. Pop out the cubes and store
    them in a Zip Lock bag.

    You don't need any stinkin' containers... freeze stock in your ice
    cube tray, then dump cubes into a zip-loc... use cubes as needed.
    However I never use such a tiny amount of stock, I freeze stock
    directly in a small zip-loc, then break off what I need, but most
    times I use the entire amount.

    Why are you freezing chicken stock to make beef soup? I'm just
    curious.

    Have you checked your local Rubbermaid or Lock 'n Lock source, like a
    big-box store or a supermarket? It seems I can find all kinds of
    smallish containers with lids. Once the stock is frozen in an upright
    state, they don't even need to be leak-proof. I know for a fact that
    Ziploc makes 1 Cup round containers.

    As to icecube trays, once the stock is frozen in cubes, dump them all
    into a plastic bag that can be air-tight-sealed, and then you can just
    take out one cube, or 6 cubes at a time.

    I second this recommendation.

    A tupperware-type container is slightly more convenient than
    a plastic bag for storing stock cubes.

    The one thing you need to remember is to use those particular
    ice cube trays only for stock... the stock scent does not go away.

    A ZipLoc-type freezer bag would work. Remove as much air as possible
    before freezing flat. Thawing would be a snap.

    Why not? Does every cooking need to be the American way?

    It's one of Vietnamese Pho recipes. For a hypoglycemic like me needing
    to eat beef, an easy way to add chicken to my diet along with beef is
    to use chicken breast meat for things like Tandoori chicken or
    fajitas, boil the breast bones just long enough to get the meat
    enchiladas (for breakfast) and then continue boiling the bones to get
    broth for beef soup. Buy sirloin beef and ask the meat dept. to cut
    thin slices for me so that I can just make the soup quickly by adding
    beef with bones (as sold in pakistani stores) to make Indoneais style
    soup sometimes dipping the thin slice beef in the broth to make
    Vietnamese soup. The plan is to eat beef and chicken together almost
    daily instead of just beef or just chicken.

    But when storing in the ice cube try, the smell of the freezer would
    get to it. I am extremely sensitive to those smell. My freezer is
    full of meat though they are in freezer bags. My be I can place the
    ice cube tray in a big ziplock bag but that'd need more room to keep
    it upright.

    It's a recipe I am following also making use of my chicken breast
    bones.

    I want to make a bunch of CONCENTARTED supply of stock in small
    cyndrical, rectangular or cube containers to place them in a ziplock
    bag *as a part of my attempt to eat what I like while meeting my
    hypoglyceimic diet requirement*. I like Asian style Vietnamese soup.

    Then all I'd need to do is to grab one or two of those cencentrated
    tubes (or whatever), throw in a microwave while I get beef for oen or
    two servigs in sandwich bag that's taken out of the ziplock bag
    defrosted in another microwave to prepare the soup quickly throwing in
    fresh veges which btw I'd pick up on my way home. The key is to have a
    little flexibility which from of beef soup dish I'd eat depending on
    what I'd feel like making with no weekly planning (for the veges
    part). I am talking about veges like bean spout that doesn't last.

    That way, all I need to do when I get home tired and low on energy -
    as a hypoglycemic, I can't tell how I feel on which days; it all
    depends on how my days go aside from eatign well - is to just grab the
    stock and beef pieces easily to make the soup quickly. Veges like
    bean sprout and snow peas (no cutting needed) can be thrown into the
    pot at the last minute. Trying to make the meal in less than 25 mins
    w/o getting too tired afterward sot hat I'd have eneregy left to do
    other things - now taking microbiology class - and wihout creating a
    big pile of things to put in the sink The sink will get full quickly
    with 1 Cup size containers. Excluding containers for storing food, I
    already have lots of containers piled up in the sink weekly as I carry
    many containers of food the day. I have enough takealong containers
    for the whole week. Staring Monday, I just pile them up in one side of
    the sink along with forks and spoons as I don't feel like stacking
    them in the dishwasher until Friday night or Saturday morning. I only
    put plates, bowls, glass and mugs in the dishwasher during the week.
    That's just my way of minimizing time in the kitchen on weekdays.


    >
    > As to icecube trays, once the stock is frozen in cubes,


    I have no room to place the icecube tray upright. Beside, it's more
    work to freeze them, take the cubes out and then refreeze them in the
    ziplock bag. Even if they don't get stuck, I'd have to touch with my
    hands to get them out.

    I guess the easiest and cheapest way is to fill half of the sandwich
    bags and then place them in a large ziplock bags and freeze, laying it
    flat. That's how I freeze my meat, reusing the empty ziplock bag by
    just puttig them back in the freezer w/o washing unless I feel like
    washing them. Then throw away when it looks old.

    In any case, wouldn't beef broth be better for that application? Or is
    he going for a "chicken fried soup" effect?

    Freeze in any of the following - clean yoghurt containers (decant into
    ziplock bags when frozen if you're going to be keeping them for long);
    plastic chinese food containers (these have lids, come in different
    sizes, and stack); plastic food containers from the supermarket -
    they're only a few bucks for a set so they're cheap, and while they
    don't last indefinitely you can reuse them five or six times if you
    don't drop them out the freezer onto their heads - that breaks the
    plastic in no time flat!
