How to skim the fat … kitchen helper


We don’t know about you but for us one of those really “eww” moments in the kitchen comes when it’s time to skim the excess fat from stocks, stews and sauces. There’s something just unpleasant about it. But as always we’re here to make your life easier so we’ve got this useful tip for you to get that skimming job done faster and easier.
