Make your homemade soups fat- and calorie-trimmed.
Option 1. To remove fat from hot soup or broth, use a large metal spoon and skim off the fat that rises to the top.
Option 2. You also can cover and refrigerate the soup or broth for 6 to 8 hours or until the fat solidifies on the surface. Then use a spoon to lift off the hardened fat.
In addition, there are utensils that will help you remove fat.
