    A simple method is to get an empty bowl and set alongside your pot of broth. Pull two segments of towel, fold to double layer of towel. Drop towel flat into the broth and immediately pull towel out and place into empty bowl, then repeat a second time. All the fat I wanted to remove was gone, with clear broth remaining.

    I am always looking for a really GOOD kitchen hint. This seems to be "The Place!"
    Thank you

    I find that after cooling the stock for a little bit putting frozen plastic ice cubes in will instantly draw the fat to it and clump it. Plastic cubes will keep from watering down the stock as it would if you were to use regular ice cubes.

    HI FOLKS. IN REGARD TO THIS ITEM, I FIND THE BEST WAY TO REMOVE FAT FROM STOCK OR SOUPS, IS TO TAKE TWO PAPER TOWELS AND PUT THEM TOGETHER, THEN FOLD IN HALF LENGTH WISE. HOLD ON TO ONE END OF THE TOWELS AND FLOAT THE TOWELS ON THE SURFACE OF THE FLOATING FAT. THE TOWELS SOAK UP THE FAT VERY WELL. REMOVE TOWELS TO A BOWL FOR DISPOSAL. I CAN GET 98% OF THE FAT OUT THIS WAY. THIS WORKS VERY WELL. THANX--DAVEY.

    The over-nighter in the fridge is best as the fat comes out in large chunks.

    If you are pressed for time floating a piece or 2 of bread will suck up lots(not good for consumes or clear broths. For that a few pieces of cold lettuce will do the trick as well.
