Remove Fat From Soup

More tips for removing fat from soup:
  • Allow a lettuce leaf to float on top of the soup and the fat will cling to it.
  • Skim the surface of the soup with a crumbled piece of plastic wrap. The fat will attach to the wrap.
  • Cool the soup in the refrigerator and after a couple of hours the fat will solidify on top and will be easy to scrape off.
  • Remove majority of fat off the top with a bulb baster and remove the remaining thin layer by laying a paper towel on the surface. The fat will cling to the paper towel.
