fat from homemade chicken or beef stock and broth
Nothing beats the
taste and flavor of homemade chicken or beef stock. Unfortunately,
it tends to be much higher in fat than the store-bought fat-free
brands, meaning you could be adding extra calories to your
diet when you really don't want to. But there is an easy way
to make your homemade stocks much closer to fat free.
Once you have finished
cooking your chicken or beef broth, allow it to cool, then
place in the refrigerator. Once it has chilled, use a spoon
to remove the fat layer from the top of the broth, which will
rise to the top as it is cooled.
Once the fat is
removed, you can use the broth in a recipe or freeze it in
portions for a later use.
