When cooking food that calls for it to be immediately cooled with ice (like hard cooked eggs or vegetables that you are freezing after blanching), I used a bottle of frozen water that I usually keep in my freezer to take along for a cold drink all day. I was short of ice and decided this worked just great. When done, return the bottle to the freezer.
