    Default Dumb serving question

    Once the food I made is frozen in ice cube trays and I'm ready to serve them, do I pop a serving out of the tray and microwave it or what?

    I would always pull it out ahead of time and let it defrost at room temp. If for some reason I didn't do this and needed some right away I would put it in the microwave for about 15 seconds. That was usually all that was needed to defrost and heat up one serving.

    No dumb questions!

    No dumb questions. I usually pop a cube out into a bowl and put it in the microwave for about 15-25 seconds to thaw out, depending on what it is.

    Will microwaving deplete any of the nutrients?

    I have a babyfood cookbook called, The Baby's Table, and in it the author does recommend that baby food not be microwaved due to the fact that it may reduce the nutrients in some fruits and veggies, and there is the risk of hidden hot spots. I just thaw my cubes out in a little sauce pan on the stove on low heat. It doesn't take very long at all, just a few minutes.
