Everyone knows if you refrigerate broth you can just scrape the fat off when it hardens.
But what if you need to strain the grease while it's still hot?
I will show you how easy it is to do with just a few simple steps.

Step 1: Get your supplies

You'll need
~A mason jar
~Just the ring from the lid
~A coffee filter
<p>There is a new way! Try a Grease Grabber. They work by floating it on your soup and it absorbs only grease!! Takes about a minute and the fatty grease is gone and your ready to eat! GreaseGrabber.org is where you can find them.</p>
How long does it last in the fridge? :) jk
I'm thinking you can get a small plank and cut a hole in it slightly wider than the mouth of your mason jar. Pour the unfiltered broth into the mason jar. Then stretch your filter around the mouth of the jar and secure it with a rubber band. Place the wooden plank over a large mixing bowl centering the hole over the bowl. Place your sealed mason jar upside down into the hole of the plank and allow it to filter into the bowl... Perhaps you could also find another mason jar with a slightly larger diameter mouth. Then you could filter from 1 mason jar to the other.
Couldn't you save some labor time by putting all of the broth in the jar then sealing it with the filter? Next you would just need to suspend it over a container to catch the filtered broth. Eliminates the need to continuously ladle into the filter as it drains down slowly.
Why yes, that would save a lot of effort. If I can figure out how to suspend it over another container I'll try that.
