When removing fat from a hot sauce, stew or soup, simply fold a paper towel and dip it in the top of the mixture. Repeat as necessary. Another option is to drop an ice cube in the pot for just a few seconds. The ice will attract the fat like a magnet. Scoop it out immediately with a slotted spoon.
Turkey or Chicken: The next time you are stuffing a turkey or chicken, make your stuffing as desired, but instead of putting the stuffing right into the cavity of the bird, line a bowl with cheesecloth or get a cheesecloth bag and then stuff that into the bird. This makes it so much easier to remove the stuffing when you are ready.
If you are stuffing your bird the old fashioned way then use the “heel” of your sliced bread. Stuff your bird as usual then cover the opening of the carcass with the bread to keep the stuffing from falling out.
