Another of those thing I thought everyone did but found out maybe not! LOL
Gearing up for a block party this coming weekend and DaHubby and I will be smoking some chickens for out part. Smoked (or baked or crockpot'd) chickens mean lots of "guts" with which to make chicken stock.
Pouring water, dumping in the leftovers, boiling and seasoning is the easy part - but getting the fat strained off afterward is sometimes a pain.
So, as you are putting the broth into the fridge to cool, place a piece of wax paper cut to the shape/size of your pot on the top of the broth. As the fat rises to the top, it clings to the wax paper. The next morning - off comes the wax paper and with it all the fat!
